Model Diagnostics Task Force (MDTF)
The MDTF diagnostic package is portable, extensible, usable, and open for contribution from the community. A goal is to allow diagnostics to be repeatable inside, or outside, of modeling center workflows. These are diagnostics focused on model improvement, and as such a slightly different focus from other efforts. The code runs on CESM model output, as well as on GFDL and CF-compliant model output.
The MDTF Diagnostic Framework consists of multiple modules, each of which is developed by an individual research group or user. Modules are independent of each other, each module:
- Produces its own html file (webpage) as the final product
- Consists of a set of process-oriented diagnostics
- Produces a figures or multiple figures that can be displayed by the html in a browser
