The CMIP Analysis Platform gives researchers convenient access to climate data from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) on CISL’s GLADE disk storage resource.
By hosting the data on GLADE, the platform enables researchers to use the Geyser and Caldera analysis and visualization systems to work with CMIP data rather than transfer large data sets from Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) sites to their local machines.
University researchers and NCAR staff can work with the CMIP data sets that are on GLADE if they have HPC user accounts and current, allocated projects for using the Geyser and Caldera clusters.
To ask for the addition of a data set to the CMIP Analysis Platform space:
University researchers first need to obtain a CMIP Analysis Platform allocation for a current project as described here, then use this form to request the data set.
NCAR staff should:

Users can ask to have other software installed by contacting the CISL Help Desk.
Users of the CMIP Analysis Platform agree to make the results of their research available through open publication. In addition, users are required to:
Journal articles or other scientific documents based on CMIP5 results should be registered at CMIP5 Publications; and analyses performed on the CMIP Analysis Platform should also be contributed to CISL’s annual publications survey.
