NCI has an extensive catalogue of datasets of interest to the weather and climate community. These datasets are directly available on the NCI supercomputer and the Australian Research Environment.
This is an intake catalogue maintained by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes CLEX. Only datasets from the NCI Catalog are referenced. The catalogue is available in intake's default catalogue list in the CLEX Conda environment. Two notebooks are provided in the docs folder showing how to access the ERA5 and CMIP6 datasets.
The ACDG portal is a metadata portal listing climate research resources available in Australia from multiple data repositories.
The Australian Ocean Data Network (AODN) is an interoperable online network of marine and climate data resources.
The Intake-Ilamb catalog provides an yaml-style intake catalogue of the reference data used for ESM model benchmarking in the International Land Model Benchmarking (ILAMB) effort.
FLUXNET scientists use the eddy covariance technique to measure the cycling of carbon, water, and energy between the biosphere and atmosphere.
This dataset is available as intake-esm catalogue.
