YOPP datasets

YOPPSiteMIP data are now restructured

By steingod |

The YOPPSiteMIP data are restructured. The Merged Model Data Files (MMDF) have been harmonised in directory structures and naming conventions and organised in a parallel structure to the Merged Observatory Data Files (MODF). Both MODF's and MMDF's are discoverable through the search interface (recommended access mechanism). Direct access to files is provided through https://thredds.met.no/thredds/arcticdata/yoppsitemip.html.

Changes in the Data Access URLS for YOPP Site MIP data - UPDATED

By laraf |

The MMDF YOPP Site MIP data available within the data catalogue are currently undergoing a restructure, including changes of data access paths and changes in file names to achieve a higher level of harmonisation.

From Friday December 8th until Monday December 18th, the data will not be available through the search interface.


Merged Observatory Data Files

By steingod |

The team creating the Merged Observatory Data Files (MODF) to be compared with the Merged Model Data Files (MMDF) of the YOPP Site Model Intercomparison (YOPP SiteMIP) activity are working hard to complete files. Some test files have been made and will be made dicsoverable in the catalogue, these files will however be replaced with updated versions in the near future so please do not use these files for publications yet. Please wait for the updated files. The files are however good for tesing purposes although they have some issues.

YOPPSiteMIP data from Meteo-France

By steingod |

Meteo-France has a FTP site with all YOPPSiteMIP data produced. Further information is provided in the attached PDF document. These data will eventually be included in the YOPP data catalogue, but in the mean time they are also available directly from the FTP site.

NRL has contributed YOPP SiteMIP data from Navy-ESPC

By steingod |

The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has committed data from the Navy Earth System Prediction Capability (Navy‐ESPC) to YOPPSiteMIP datasets. the data are directly available at https://thredds.met.no/thredds/catalog/alertness/YOPP_supersite/navy-es… and addition of discovery metadata to the YOPP Data catalogue is in progress.

How to Search for Data in the YOPP Data Portal - a video tutorial

By steingod |

From the YOPP news section at https://www.polarprediction.net/news/:

MET Norway and the YOPP International Coordination Office are publishing the first of a series of video tutorials on how data can be searched in the YOPP Data Portal. YOPP maintains this metadata portal as an overview archive for Arctic and Antarctic data generated during the Year of Polar Prediction. The community is invited to find YOPP data from a specific area or time to use for their various purposes.

Arome-Arctic YOPPSiteMIP data available

By steingod |

The Norwegian Meteorological Institute has uploaded YOPPSiteMIP data for YOPP supersites Ny-Ålesund and Sodankylä that are within the geographical domain of the Arome-Arctic model. Data are searchable and also directly available at:


ECCC YOPP SiteMIP data available

By steingod |

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) has developed the Canadian Arctic Prediction System (CAPS). CAPS has been runned in operation at the Canadian Meteorological Service in experimental mode since February 2018. Prior to the 28th of June 2018 (included), CAPS was runned uncoupled, whereas since the 29th of June 2018 (included), CAPS was coupled with the Canadian Regional Ice and Ocean Prediction system (RIOPS).
