The ENES Climate Analytics Service (ECAS) allows end-users to perform server-side processing on climate data


The ENES Climate Analytics Service (ECAS) is a server-side processing service offered to ENES users with current cluster installations at CMCC and DKRZ. ECAS offers a virtual work environment based on Jupyter notebooks, allowing you to process and analyse data (including CMIP5 and CMIP6 data) using Python. Support for fast computations is provided via the Ophidia data analytics framework. The service is free for use by ENES users at the current installations at DKRZ and CMCC.

ECAS is integrated with other e-infrastructure services as part of the European Open Science Cloud in the frame of the EOSC-hub project.

CMCC service information

DKRZ service information

  • The DKRZ ECAS instance: https://ecaslab.dkrz.de
  • Usage requires free registration. Please follow the instructions on the website.
  • The DKRZ instance offers direct access to the CMIP5 and CMIP6 data pools. During the CMIP6 operational phase, the CMIP6 data pool is continually updated with newly available data.

Example workflows available

Example experiments and Jupyter notebooks are available at the DKRZ and CMCC instances and on GitHub. There is also training material available on GitHub.

Concerning use of the computing framework, the documentation on the Ophidia framework websites contains starter tutorials, descriptions of all processing operators and example workflows.
