Making a new dataset

If you are contributing a new dataset, please have a look at the documentation for how to do so.


Make sure that the new dataset is added to the table in the documentation.

The documentation should have clear instructions on how to obtain the data.


Add a test for the CMORized data to recipes/example/recipe_check_obs.yml and run the recipe, to make sure the CMOR checks pass without errors.

CMORizer output

When contributing a new dataset, we expect that the numbers and units of the dataset look physically meaningful.

Adding your dataset to the OBS data pool

Once your contribution has been accepted, tag @remi-kazeroni in your pull request, so that the new dataset can be added to the OBS data pool at DKRZ and synchronized with CEDA-Jasmin
