CANARI Scientists Begin Analysis of the HadGEM3 Large Ensemble

Production of the CANARI large ensemble has progressed well since the start of 2023. The first half of the dataset – 40 members of historical simulation covering 1950-2015 – is almost complete, forming the first Single-Model Initial Condition Large Ensemble (SMILE) based on the UK Met Office Climate Model (HadGEM3) at N216 atmospheric resolution. Production of the second half of the dataset – 40 members of future projections out to 2100 – will begin over the coming months.

To kick-start analysis of the new data, CANARI is holding a coding “sprint” during March 4-8, 2024. The week will see a concerted effort from scientists across CANARI to take a first look at the new data, share best practices for data management and analysis, and initiate novel collaborations between the NERC Research Centres.
