Data requirements
 
The diagnostic list for this experiment uses a subset of the standard CMIP5 lists, including the satellite simulators and other diagnostics proposed by the CFMIP project to enable a process orientated evaluation and understanding of the models (see below). As such, modelling groups submitting to CMIP5 should need to do little extra work to set up diagnostics for Transpose-AMIP II. For typical climate model resolutions (1 degree and 40 vertical levels), the data volume per model contributed to transpose-AMIP II is expected to be less than 1Tb. This is small compared to a typical CMIP5 experiment.
