The COSIMA Cookbook is a framework for analysing output from ocean-sea ice models. The focus is on the ACCESS-OM2 suite of models being developed and run by members of COSIMA: Consortium for Ocean-Sea Ice Modelling in Australia, but the framework is suitable for other model output.

Getting Started

To use the COSIMA Cookbook you will need to install your own copy of the code -- most likely you will be doing this on the NCI Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). See Getting Started for detailed information on how to install the Cookbook, and requirements for running analyses.

Using the Cookbook

The COSIMA Cookbook relies on several components:

  1. There needs to be a database of simulations -- on the NCI system, model output that is stored in the COSIMA space on the hh5 directory.
  2. Once you have access to data, the best place to start is the cosima-recipes repository. Here, there are a series of jupyter notebooks containing examples which explain how you can use the cookbook.

Contributing to the Cookbook

If you like the cookbook, you may like to interact more closely with us:

  • Contributions of new notebooks or analysis scripts are always welcome. Please check out the cosima-recipes repository.
  • If you find a problem, or have a suggestion for improvement, please log an issue.
