2.1 OCMIP-2 files

All injection simulations are to be made with an abiotic ocean. They must comply with previous OCMIP-2 guidelines, namely the abiotic simulation for DIC. Thus modelers should refer to the Abiotic HOWTO available on this Web site. The standard OCMIP-2 files necessary for the injection simulations are listed below. They can be retrieved directly from this Web page (you can save a file to disk by clicking a link while holding down the Shift key).

After transferring the file gasx_ocmip2.nc.gz (binary mode), one must then uncompress it:


gunzip gasx_ocmip2.nc

Other files are text and need no special treatment after transfer. Use of these files is described below.

2.2 GOSAC files

In addition to following the guidelines described in the Abiotic HOWTO of OCMIP-2, all modelers must also follow the GOSAC guidelines given here to make the injection simulations. The appropriate files are listed below. They are used to read the prescribed boundary conditions, to perform the injection, and to provide some basic diagnostics. Just like the previous OCMIP-2 files, the files below can be retrieved directly from this Web page.

All the files are text and need no special treatment after transfer. Use of these files is described below; comments within each file provide further details.
