The IPRC has an on-going collaboration with the Earth Simulator Center in Yokohama, Japan. Through this collaboration, the APDRC serves output from atmospheric, oceanic and coupled models run on the Earth Simluator, known as AFES, OFES and CFES, respectively. These models are run by the Atmosphere and Ocean Simulation Research Group (AOSG), whose mission is to cultivate the new potential of tera-scale simulations for the variability studies on the atmosphere, oceans and its coupled system together with the research coordinations for the effective use of the unique ES hardware resource.
This page provides links to these data sets, along with links to the ESC, where more information can be found about the models and ES in general.
Please note that these data sets are provided for the Earth Simulator Group and are not yet available for public release. Publically available OFES data may be obtained at:
