PMIP and the CMIP6 Data Request


The CMIP6 data request for PMIP is a document that allows PMIP participants to specify which variables they are interested in, at which frequency, and for which scientific purpose. This documents specifies which variable type/frequency will be generated for each PMIP experiment, as well as the length of the experiments. It also specifies which experiments from other endorsed MIPs will be used by PMIP participants. See the actual spreadsheet below for more details

The variables requested for PMIP come from several sources (see the Documents section below for details)

  • The PMIP 2 variables
  • The CMIP5 variables
  • Variables from other CMIP5-related MIPs (CORDEX, …)
  • New isotope related variables suggested by Didier Roche
  • Variables suggested by Yves Balkanski


The PMIP request

The actual data request is composed of 2 Excel spreadheets:

  • An annotated version of the CMIP5 standard output document where we have specified a PMIP priority for each variable (see the rightmost column of each tab): same priority as CMIP5 (1), higher priority (2), not requested for PMIP (0)
  • The CMIP6DataRequestCompilationTemplate document, work in progress…
