One of the goals of the COSIMA community is to create a common framework for evaluating and diagnosing model output. Our initial attempts to do this are encapsulated in the COSIMA Cookbook. The Cookbook aims to:

  • Create standard Jupyter Notebooks for diagnosing model simulations, or groups of simulations;
  • Documenting methods to efficiently interrogate large model datasets;
  • Document model sensitivity studies; and
  • Provide a gallery highlighting commonly used diagnostics.

The COSIMA Cookbook is publicly available on the OceansAus Github repository. We are also in the process of building documentation and the COSIMA gallery.
