The Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) consists of federated data centres across the globe that enable access to the largest archive of climate data world-wide. This portal allows you to find, select and download data files from the federation.
The NCI ESGF node currently hosts Australian produced data for the following collections:
Generally, data is publicly available for download and can be accessed without a login. However, some projects may require that you login first (you'll be prompted if this is required). If you've already created an account on another ESGF node then you can use that without needing to register again. Otherwise, you can register for a new account here.
Additionally, the following collections require group registration using the link provided:
Users with access to NCI systems such as raijin or VDI can also access these collections on the global Lustre filesystem:
Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5
Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment
Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project
Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project Phase 3
