The CMIP5 Gateway system has been retired. Please use the new ESGF P2P interface to obtain CMIP5 data.
BADC is part of the STFC Centre for Environmental Data Archival (CEDA) and exists to curate, and facilitate access to, data of importance to the environmental science community. BADC is primarily supported by the Natural Environment Research Council via the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS). The UK component of the IPCC Data Distribution Centre is supported by the UK Department
of Energy and Climate Change.
The main reason for this gateway is to provide access to the globally distributed
data produced for CMIP5 along with the accompanying metadata.
The comprehensive scientific and technical metadata available for CMIP5 will far exceed the
information available for previous CMIP efforts. The metadata descriptions are linked to CMIP5 model outputs, and vice versa. To view the metadata describing the simulations undertaken for CMIP5, select Simulations in the Search pull down menu
on the left of the box above.
This gateway also provides a view of the catalogues of our ESG partners,
some of whom are exposing more than just CMIP5 data. Additional
environmental data can be found in
The BADC catalogue, and
The NERC environmental data gateway, and
The IPCC Data Distribution Centre.
One day we'll join up all these information resources under one catalogue!
