In this report CMS welcomes Annette Hirsch to the team, alerts users to retracted ERA5 data, continues work on ACCESS-ESM1.5, and looks at changes to NCI processes, and CLEX data management practices and training.
Clemente Lopez-Bravo has created two datasets – L1 and L2 – of satellite observations of cloud properties across Australia and the Maritime Continent. The datasets, which have been released for the scientific community, are at a 2km spatial resolution at hourly intervals and cover five Austral summers in the period from November 2015 to March 2020.
Version 1 of the Aus400 dataset has been released for community use. This dataset is from a simulation using a regional version (v11.4) of the Met Office unified model (the atmosphere component of The Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator, ACCESS) with 400m grid spacing over all of Australia.
Two new ACCESS models have been released (ACCESS-CM2, ACCESS-ESM1.5), the Aus400 dataset has been published, the ERA5 collection is being transferred to NCI and there is now a new quick process to book meetings with our CMS team.

Scott Wales goes over some of the tools CMS has put together to help you find where your data is on Raijin and identify what can be cleaned up.
The seven-year funding for Centres of Excellence ostensibly supports focused research across existing scientific communities but, as the Consortium for Ocean-Sea Ice Modelling in Australia (COSIMA) shows, it can also help create entirely new scientific communities in a specific research area.
In this report CMS describes the preparations that are underway for the new NCI supercomputer Gadi; the conversion of forcing data from the GMTB single column model to be readable by WRF; and the release of the ERA5-Land dataset.
