CORDEX-CMIP6 Atmosphere Variable List
The Second Order Draft (SOD) of the CORDEX-CMIP6 Atmosphere Variable List (VL) was shared with the CORDEX community in January 2022. We are very grateful to all who have read the SOD in detail and provided comments. The final version of the CORDEX-CMIP6 Atmosphere Variable List is ready and we share it with the CORDEX community.
All together we received about 40 comments on the SOD and the first priority has been given to topics with a number of similar comments. We tried to find a balance between requests for providing more variables at higher subdaily frequencies and requests for reducing output size by archiving a number of variables at lower subdaily frequencies. The CORDEX-CMIP6 Atmosphere Variable List has a lot of flexibility to select output variables and their output frequencies to accommodate capacities of different RCM groups.
A tutorial to the CORDEX-CMIP6 Data Request describing how to select output variables and their output intervals and how to archive a number of specific variables is also provided.
