CMS Support over Christmas Period

In line with university Christmas closure periods, the CMS team will be unavailable from 21st December 2019 until 2nd January 2020. However, there will also be minimal support on Friday 20th December and after this period until Monday 6th January due to limited availability of staff.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

New versions of cf-python and cf-plot for Python 3

As you probably know, Python 2 is being frozen at the end of this year - so Python 3 is the future!

We are happy to announce that the Python 3 versions of cf-python (v3.0.1) and cf-plot (v3.0.3) are now available for Linux and Mac.

The new cf-plot documentation is in its usual place (https://ajheaps.github.io/cf-plot), but the new cf-python documentation has moved to a new home: https://ncas-cms.github.io/cf-python

These new versions are only Python 3-only, and we would encourage new users to start with Python 3. All future training courses will be run using Python 3.

The Python 2 code is still available, of course, and will be fully supported for a limited period - but all new features from now on will only go into the Python 3 libraries.

Both the Python 2 and Python 3 versions of cf-python and cf-plot are already installed on

  • Jasmin@CEDA,
  • Archer
  • Archer Jasmin RDF
  • Reading University RACC cluster

See http://ajheaps.github.io/cf-plot/download.html for access instructions, as well as instructions for personal installations.

We hope that you enjoy using the new versions, and welcome feedback of any nature.

UM Introduction Course (6-8 November 2019)

NCAS-CMS will be delivering a 3-day course introducing new users to the Met Office Unified Model with the Rose/cylc system. The course is a mix of practical exercises and informal lectures covering a range of topics including running suites, code management, file formats, and troubleshooting common problems.

The course will be held at the University of Reading from 6-8 November 2019. There is no fee for attending the course, and lunch will be provided. However, attendees are responsible for their own travel, accommodation, and other subsistence costs.

Material from previous course can be found here:

UM 11.3

The Met Office have released version 11.3 of the UM. It's installed on ARCHER and MONSooN, so feel free to upgrade any suites as may be relevant. The list of CMS supported versions is here.

NCAS-CMS provides information services and support for modelling in the ac.uk atmospheric science community.
