The COSIMA Cookbook is the recommended, and supported, method for finding and accessing COSIMA datasets.
Currently COSIMA datasets are located in temporary storage under the hh5 project on the /g/data filesystem at NCI. The default COSIMA Cookbook database (/g/data/hh5/tmp/cosima/database/access-om2.db) indexes data in this location.
The COSIMA datasets are being moved to a new project, ik11: dedicated storage provided by an ARC LIEF grant. As part of this transition the default database will change to:
and will index all data in /g/data/ik11/outputs/. The database is updated daily.
This change will take place from Wednesday the 1st of July. To access the old database pass an argument to create_session:
session = cc.database.create_session(db='/g/data/hh5/tmp/cosima/database/access-om2.db')
or set the COSIMA_COOKBOOK_DB environment variable, e.g. for bash
export set COSIMA_COOKBOOK_DB=/g/data/hh5/tmp/cosima/database/access-om2.db
In the same way the new ik11 database can be accessed by using the path to it (/g/data/ik11/databases/cosima_master.db) in the same manner as above.
