SD/WACCM-X v. 2.1 extended runs (1980-2017)
30 TB of WACCM-X v. 2.1 specified dynamics (SD) output, covering the years 1980-2017, are available on the NCAR Climate Data Gateway and can be accessed at the following link: https://doi.org/10.26024/5b58-nc53.
All the data are in netCDF format: self-describing binary data format used for primary CESM output.
WACCM-X output is written to several output streams, each with a particular frequency and averaging characteristic:
- h0: monthly instantaneous
- h1: 3-hourly instantaneous
- h2: daily instantaneous
- h3: daily averages
- h4: 5-day averages
- h6: daily averages, zonal mean circulation diagnostics
