CMIP6 Control vocabulary minimum requirements.

  • CMOR 3 required a new Control Vocabulary file which must contains 4 mandatory keys for CMIP6.
    • institutions_ids: A dictionary of of registered institution IDs with a description.
    • source_ids: A dictionary of registered source IDS (model) with a specific description.
    • experiment_ids: A dictionary of experiment_ids (CMIP6) pointing to a dictionary of specific metadata.
    • grid_labels: A dictionary of grid labels(gr, gn, …) pointing to a native_resolution for the selected grid.

Example

{
"CV": {
    "institution_ids": { "BNU":"GCESS, BNU, Beijing, China" },
    "source_ids": { "CESM1-CAM5": "CESM1 (CAM5): model version ca. 2009" },
    "experiment_ids": { "piControl": { } },
    "grid_labels": { "gr":     { "native_resolution":"5 km" } }
   }
}
