AMIP II Ozone ancillary

Is there an AMIP II zone ancillary available? ozone_lev19 might be it — should be based on Wang et al, 1995

Hi Simon

The problem is knowing the provenance of files this old. I've no idea what's in this ancillary file other than it comes from a job which is an AMIPII job, which suggests it's what your looking for.

I still have the PCMDI ozone file used for AMIPII and a program to convert it into an ancillary file, so that could be used to make a new 19 level ozone file. Let me know if you want me to do this or if you want the code/data.

Hi jeff. I want to run on eddie. Could you send me the ancillary and your data? I'll check and if I think they are the same will use the ancillary?

Hi Simon

I've copied a file (~v1jcole/ozone_l19.tar.gz) onto eddie. This file contains the ozone ancillary from the umui job, a ozone ancillary made from the PCMDI data on hector, the difference between these files, the original PCMDI data and a program to convert this to ancillary format. Hopefully this will tell you all you need to know.

Hi Jeff,

I've computed the dobson units from the ozone_lev19 ancillary and compared them with Fig 1 of Wang et al. I think the data is the same. So thanks for your help and if others want to use AMIP ozone then ozone_lev19 is the one to use!
