How to submit bias-adjusted RCM data
Step 1: Registration
Firstly, groups submitting bias-adjusted CORDEX simulations can check whether they are already registered and the information concerning details of bias-adjusted datasets is available and correct in the CORDEX bias adjustment list. Contact email@example.com for more details.
If your group is not included in this list then you should register by contacting CORDEX-ESD registration list (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the following information:
- Full institution name
- Short institution name (acronym)
- Contact person and e-mail
- Full name of bias adjustment method
- Short name of bias adjustment method (acronym)
- Reference to bias adjustment method
- Full name of the software package including version number, if available
- Observational datasets used for bias adjustment
- CORDEX domains with bias-adjusted simulations
Step 2: Submitting bias-adjusted CORDEX simulations for publishing on ESGF
If a group has its own ESGF data node it is presumed that the group will publish its own bias-adjusted CORDEX simulations on that node.
All groups who have no agreement (within projects or any other kind of cooperation) with one of the CORDEX-ESGF data nodes should contact CORDEX-ESD registration (email@example.com) providing information about the bias-adjusted CORDEX simulations to be published. They will then be directed to one of the CORDEX-ESGF data nodes and will receive instructions on how to transfer their bias-adjusted CORDEX simulations.
Step 3: Format and Quality Control
All bias-adjusted CORDEX simulations have to be formatted according to the CORDEX archive specifications and to the CORDEX variables requirement tables with bias-adjustment-related modifications described in the Data Reference Syntax (DRS) for bias-adjusted CORDEX simulations . Before publication on a CORDEX-ESGF data node the data will undergo strict quality control (QC).
