Dr Sophie Lewis of the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Melbourne has completed a series of model simulations for the
Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 5 (CMIP5) project.
She used the ACCESS model (both version 1-0 and 1-3), a general circulation climate model developed as a collaboration between CSIRO and BoM.
She run three ensembles for the historical experiment, simulating the global climate between 1850-2006, using historical forcing. One simulation uses ACCESS1-0 (ensemble r2i1p1), the other two use ACCESS1-3 (ensembles r2i1p1 and r3i1p1).
She also completed three ensembles (r1i1p1, r2i1p1 and r3i1p1) for the historicalNat experiment, simulating the global climate between 1850-2006, using only natural forcing.
And three ensembles (r1i1p1, r2i1p1 and r3i1p1) for the historicalGHG experiment, simulating the global climate between 1850-2006, using historical well-mixed greenhouse gases forcing.

Publication and access


The output of the simulations has been post-processed and quality checked and then published on the NCI Earth System Grid node (ESG NCI node) .
Both the CMIP5 and the original raw output are hosted on raijin. The raw output is stored on massdata under project w97. The CMIP5 output is hosted on
/g/data/p66/CMIP5/published/CMIP5/output1/CSIRO-BOM/ACCESS.... -- this includes the output of other ACCESS simulations performed by CAWCR
On /g/data/p66/pfu599/CMIP5/output/CSIRO-BOM/ACCESS... -- this includes also CMIP5 output in preparation for publication.
More information on the post-processing and quality check process are listed in the ACCESS publishing procedure page.
These datasets are accessible to anyone that has a NCI account, to access the raw output please contact climate_help@nf.nci.org.au
More information on the CAWCR simulations is available on the CAWCR ACCESS wiki.

All the simulations are currently published on the ESG.
Metadata for the same collections have been published on the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) metadata repository, Research Data Australia (RDA)

Due to a bug with the RDA website while all the records are found, no more than five will be shown, so here is a complete list:
