The search interface has been updated. Now the map used in the search box supports more map projections, including a southern and northern hemisphere map. Furthermore, the search interface has been further restructured and prepared for more faceted searchs (e.g. by institutions) in the future. The business logic supproting transformations has also received some upgrades, but many of these will first be fully visible once the backend services are updated as well.
The NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) have developed a number of templates following the CF and ACDD conventions as requested by the YOPP guidelines. Further information on these templates are available at https://www.nodc.noaa.gov/data/formats/netcdf/v2.0/.
Meteo-France has extracted ARPEGE data over the Southern Hemisphere YOPP supersites. These data are now available on the ftp site ftp.umr-cnrm.fr (user: yopp / password: Arpege). Change working directory to YOPP-SH where NetCdf-MIP contains the output for the supersites using the exact same format as used for the YOPP-NH super site (now available on the YOPP Data Portal). In addition 3D fields are output in a GRIB format (under YOPP-SH/3DFIELDS) as well. Inclusion of the SH data as NetCDF/CF in the YOPP Data portal is currently in progress.
The first PAMIP data are now available through https://pcmdi.llnl.gov/CMIP6/ArchiveStatistics/esgf_data_holdings/. These data are important for PPP and YOPP. Further information is available in https://www.geosci-model-dev.net/12/1139/2019/.
CNRM, University de Toulouse, Météo-France, CNRS, Toulouse, France has provided YOPP Model Site Intercomparison data for the Arctic Supersites. These data are indexed in the catalogue and the results are available through https://yopp.met.no/metadata_search/?quid=3d5a7b4b0a927c64ef1d0f6d5759b… (push "search").
The Norwegian Meteorological Institute is extracting public data from WMO GTS and converting these to NetCDF/CF. This is being done for SYNOP, TEMP and SHIP data. Some of these data have been indexed in the catalogue with discovery metadata (SYNOP), but not all. Furthermore, work is in progress on the TEMP data to support high resolution profiles.
Several of the YOPP modelling teams have been working on extraction of data over YOPP supersites. Information from two models in the Arctic, ARPEGE and ECCC-CAPS are now available in NetCDF/CF through a THREDDS Data Server. Work is in progress to make these data searchable through the YOPP catalogue. The data is available at http://thredds.met.no/thredds/catalog/alertness/YOPP_supersite/catalog.html.
A working group has been identifying YOPP supersites where numerical simualtions can be compared with extensive observations. Background material is provided in the YOPP supersite Model Intercomparison project (YOPPSiteMIP) paper.
PANGAEA is hosting YOPP data. Information on these datasets are regularly harvested from the YOPP Data Portal and ingested. YOPP datasets hosted by PANGAEA are attached to the YOPP project which is available at https://www.pangaea.de/?f.project=YOPP. Several of the datasets have parent/child relationships. Maintenance of these parent/child relationships is attempted in the searchable YOPP catalog.
