Input data: Desmond – December 2015

The input data (consisting of initial conditions and namelists) are packed in .tar.gz files and structured into directories named after the case studies (i.e., Desmond_201512) and subdirectories indicating the main experiment characteristics (e.g., T255L91_ERA5). Separate archive files were prepared for the different starting dates (e.g., gs0c_2015120300.tar.gz). The package contains also the re-analysis data needed for evaluation of the experiment results. The requested archives can be downloaded by clicking on them one by one in the corresponding folders.

Listing file to check the data download
md5sum.out 1.2 KB Listing file containing a 32-byte checksum corresponding to each file above

Retrieval of the complete package is also possible using wget (wget builds up the same directory structure as in the ftp site):


% wget -c -r -l2 --no-parent -A.gz ${INPUTDIR}data/Desmond_201512   # to download all data for Desmond

The md5sum.out file is provided to check the download. The file also has to be retrieved and then the downloaded data can be compared against it:

% md5sum -c md5sum.out

If the download is not complete, the following (exemplary) warning message can be given:
