I am using
intake-esm and the Pangeo CMIP6 catalog to access CMIP6 model output which is working great so far. So, first off, thanks to everyone involved creating these tools!
I have a question about the completeness of the catalog with respect to the data on the ESGF server. Specifically, I am interested in the output of the HadGEM3-GC31-MM model and I am looking for, among others, data of surface downwelling longwave radiation (output variable name
rlds). On the ESGF server, I can find 4 datasets (for 4 ensemble members) with daily and montly output, and one dataset with 3-hourly output. Unfortunately, I am not able to locate the daily and datasets in the Pangeo catalog. The following query results in an empty data frame.
import intake url = "https://storage.googleapis.com/cmip6/pangeo-cmip6.json" col = intake.open_esm_datastore(url) # query query = dict( activity_id="CMIP", experiment_id="historical", source_id="HadGEM3-GC31-MM", variable_id=["rlds"], table_id="day" ) cat_daily = col.search(**query) cat_daily.df
All other variables I am interested in (including surface downward shortwave radiation) are available with at least daily resolution. Therefore, I am wondering what are the criteria for datasets to be included in the Pangeo Catalog?
