This tool checks the compliance of ISMIP6 netCDF formatted simulation experiment files according criteria, which are related to:

  • naming conventions
  • admissible numerical values
  • spatial definition of the grid which differs according to the ice sheet, Greenland (GIS) vs Antarctica (AIS)
  • time recording dependent of the experiments

This tool was ported from the GitHub  Ice Sheet Simulation compliance checker  project, initially developed by Jean-Baptiste Barré as part of the PROTECT project. The PROTECT project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 869304.
