CALIBRE downscaling

Reported by: pmcguire Owned by: pmcguire
Priority: normal Component: Land Surface Modelling
Keywords: CALIBRE, SDVGM, downscaling, ECMIP Cc: t.l.quaife@…
Platform: Other UM Version:


Can you get CALIBRE setup with downscaling and the SDVGM model?
SDVGM is currently on the met-cloud. The docs haven't kept up with the source code.
Then get it running with ISIMIP.
SDVGM is a land surface model with vegetation and terrestrial carbon balance.

Hi Tristan

I was able to compile successfully the sdgvm0 code. I tried running it. But I don't belong to the essc group and I don't have permissions

to read the subdirectories of /export/cloud/nceo/users/db903833/sdgvmDrivers/SDGVMdata/ .
Can you fix this?

Thanks for fixing the permissions. It runs now.

Tristan says:
"The next job is get data from ISIMIP ( and convert it into the format of the driving data used by the model.

In the first instance just a single model for RCP2.6 would be ideal. I assume once it's done for one ISIMIP dataset it will be easy to repeat for any of them."

I now can download ISIMIP forcing data (RCP2.6). I am working on reformatting this data and finding sufficient disk space for the data.
