Guidance for Modelling Centres
Modelling centres can see more detailed guidance on CMIP6 participation here
We have organised a series of drop-in sessions for modelling centres to provide input and feedback for the design of the next CMIP phase, CMIP7. Each session is centred around a different topic. You can see our upcoming modelling centre drop-in sessions here.
Map of Modelling Centres and ESGF Nodes
Below is a map showing the CMIP6 modelling centres and ESGF nodes. Where there are multiple modelling centres and nodes in a similar location, pins (yellow) have been grouped together (blue circles). Zoom in on the map to see more pins.

List of ESGF Nodes
Scroll through to see ESGF nodes with CMIP data. You can also view this list in a new tab by following this link. Some nodes have a website listed. These are the nodes for which you can search through the CMIP data on a website interface.
Nodes are divided into four categories, based on the data which they host and their data search capabilities. In the following descriptions, original CMIP data is the data a specific modelling centre has produced
- Data replication nodes: publish original CMIP data and replicate other modelling centre’s CMIP data.
- Data indexing nodes: publish only original CMIP data, but allow for indexing/searching of data on other nodes
- Replication and indexing nodes: Nodes which publish original CMIP data, replicate other modelling centre’s CMIP data, and allow for indexing of data on other nodes
- Original data nodes: Publish only original CMIP data.
