Simple tools to query the available data from a local CMIP5 archive and the ESGF.

Latest Version: 2.0

Python code to manage the analysis of climate model outputs published in the CMIP5 archive

This package provides simple tools to process data from the CMIP5 archive distributed by the Earth System Grid Federation.

This package was developed by F. B. Laliberte and P. J. Kushner in the Atmospheric Physics Group at the University of Toronto in 2011 and 2012. The main purpose of this package is to provide simple tools to climate scientists and to help the “ExArch: Climate analytics on distributed exascale data archives” G8 Research Initiative grant.

Note that the included tool “cdb_driver” is still in alpha testing phase and might even disappear in future releases.

This code was developed as part of the ExArch project:
