Abstract

HiGEM (High Resolution Global Environmental Modelling) is a UK programme in between NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) and the Hadley Centre of the Met Office. The aim is to advance in the fidelity of simulations of the global environment by taking the new Met Office climate model (HadGEM1a) to unprecedented resolutions. The resulting simulations aim to improve our understanding of mechanisms of climate variability and change on timescales of days to centuries.

Access rules:
Restricted data: please submit an application using the REQUEST ACCESS link for access.
Use of these data is covered by the following licence: http://licences.ceda.ac.uk/image/data_access_condition/higem.pdf. When using these data you must cite them correctly using the citation given on the CEDA Data Catalogue record.
Data lineage:

Data files were supplied directly from the supercomputer HECTOR to the BADC as the model was running. The data files at the BADC are in the original model output format, namely pp.

Data Quality:
The data was quality controlled by the HiGEM team.
File Format:
Availability of data, file format and software

Access to the HiGEM data sets is available via the HiGEM data browser directory. Alternatively you can ftp the data from ftp.ceda.ac.uk.

Software is available to manipulate and view the HadCM3 data. swapbytes can be used to byte swap pp files from the COAPEC dataset if necessary. xconv provides an easy to use point and click interface to the data. convsh provides a subset of the functionality of xconv, but in a scriptable form, so it can be used to automate some common data processing tasks. Jeff Cole at CGAM Reading, who developed both xconv and convsh, provides some example uses of convsh

A summary of HiGEM data held at the BADC with links to webpages showing and the evolution of certain key parameters is available to HiGEM participants. Details of previous HiGEM simulations can be found here. The HiGEM simulations archived at the BADC are at N144 Atmosphere resolution (1.25 lat x 0.83 lon) and 1/3 degree ocean resolution. The HiGEM simulations have 38 vertical levels in the atmosphere and 40 vertical levels in the ocean.

A suite of example datasets are also available to HiGEM partners, these include:

  • HadCM3(L30) - a 100 year integration of a version of the HadCM3 AOGCM, but with 30, instead of 19, atmospheric levels
  • HadCM3 control integration - 100 year and 1000 year datasets from the Hadley Centre supplied to the NERC COAPEC thematic programme.
  • HadCEML integration - 100 year datasets of the HadCEML model from the Hadley Centre .

The current status of the HiGEM dataset at the BADC can be found here

The HIGEM data file format is as follows:

  • HiGEM simulations are held as 32 bit UM pp files.
  • HadCM3(L30) data are held as 64 bit UM fields files
  • HadCM3 control data are held as 32 bit pp files
  • HadCM3 control data from the Beowulf cluster are held as NetCDF files
  • HadCEML data held as both NetCDF and pp files.

This dataset was generated by the computation detailed below.
Title High Resolution Global Environmental Model (HiGEM) deployed on HPCx
Abstract This computation involved: High Resolution Global Environmental Model (HiGEM) deployed on HPCx. The model code itself is based on the weather forecasting model of the Met Office. It solves forms of the Navier Stokes equations and simulates the many complex processes in the atmosphere, ocean, ice and land surface. The HIGEM code was developed in the NERC community from Unified Model Version V6.1, and involved improving the resolution and a number of bug fixes. The atmosphere of HiGEM is 30 km deep with 38 vertical levels, L38. The horizontal resolution is 1.25 degrees of longitude by 0.83 degrees of latitude, N144, which produces a global grid of 288 by 217 grid cells. The oceanic component of HiGEM is 5 km deep with 40 vertical levels. The horizontal resolution is 0.333 degrees of longitude by 0.333 degrees of latitude, which produces a global grid of 1082 by 540 grid cells. The HPCx system comprises 160 IBM POWER5 eServer nodes, i.e. 2560 processors, delivering 15.36 TeraFlop/s peak, or 12.9 TeraFlops/s sustained (as rated in the Top500 list). The system is equipped with 5.12 TByte of memory and 72 TByte of disk.
