We provide details only for transferring Equilibrium Output. Output from the other Abiotic simulations ( Historical Output, Future Output, Pulse Output, and Control Output) should be transferred in an analogous fashion.
Equilibrium Output files
first be compressed.
gzip IPSL_Abiotic_equil.nc IPSL_Abiotic_TS_year.nc
If gzip is not available on your machine, the alternative is to use
compress. After compression, you should ftp your files to LSCE
for processing and analysis. Your model output could be quite large
depending upon model resolution. Fear not though, because we have the
disk space to accommodate output from all OCMIP models. Contact us if
the ftp transfer rate is inadequate. In that case, you'll need to
write your output to tape (DDS, DDS2, Exabyte, or DLT) and mail it to
James ORR LSCE, CEA Saclay Unite mixte de recherche CEA-CNRS Bat. 709, L'Orme des Merisiers F-91191 Gif-sur-Yvette CEDEX FRANCE
Here are the commands to transfer your output by ftp:
ftp: ftp.cea.fr user: anonymous passwd: your full email cd incoming2/y2k01/OCMIP mkdir <your group name> mkdir <your group name>/Abiotic cd <your group name>/Abiotic binary prompt mput <your group name>*nc*
Then e-mail us ( email@example.com and Patrick.Brockmann@ipsl.jussieu.fr) that your transfer is complete.
To avoid confusion, you can create further subdirectories (Abiotic/equil, Abiotic/hist, Abiotic/futr, Abiotic/puls, and Abiotic/ctrl) to distinguish the five different types of runs. The ftp archive is erased automatically every 8 days, so be sure to contact us as soon as you have completed transfer, and save your output files at least until we have notified you that they have been transferred to the OCMIP-2 model output archive.
