What ece2cmor3 can do for you

  • Process EC-Earth climate model output to CMIP6-compliant NetCDF files
  • Create EC-Earth output configurations from CMIP6 data requests
  • Explore what variables can be produced with EC-Earth
  • Support for atmosphere, ocean, land and chemistry sub-models
  • Parallel execution of cdo commands processing the atmospheric GRIB files

ece2cmor3 is a python package that allows climate scientists to post-process raw EC-Earth climate model output to CMIP6-compliant, annotated NetCDF4 files with a few simple python scripts. The software is easily installed on your local HPC facility using Anaconda and makes efficiently use of multi-core machines by executing the post-processing in a parallel queue over variables (for the atmospheric data). Furthermore, ece2cmor3 contains various helper scripts to configure the EC-Earth namelists and extract EC-Earth-supported variables from a given data request.
