     10# Foreword # 
     11 
     12This users' manual describes the models and tools developed at the IPSL Climate Modeling Center. 
     13 
     14For common hardware Homes (also called "machines"), this website provides information on how to:   
     15 * download reference configurations 
     16 * compile 
     17   - the source codes of the different model components 
     18   - the coupling interface (ocean-atmosphere) and the coupler   
     19 * perform a reference experiment (including input files) 
     20 * monitor its execution 
     21 * produce and store raw outputs 
     22 * produce, store and share ATLAS and standard analyses 
     23 
     24 
     25# Reference configurations # 
     26Several model configurations (coupled and forced) are available and described in this manual. Recommended configurations are:  
     27 
     28## The ''_v5'' configurations ## 
     29 * IPSLCM5_v5 : the reference IPSL coupled model for CMIP5-type simulations including atmosphere, land surface, ocean, sea ice and the carbon cycle 
     30 * LMDZOR_v5 : atmosphere-land only 
     31 * LMDZORINCA_v5 : atmosphere-land-tropospheric chemistry  
     32 * LMDZREPR_v5 : atmosphere-stratospheric chemistry 
     33 * IPSLCM5CHT_v5 : the reference coupled model with tropospheric chemistry  
     34 * IPSLCM5CHS_v5 : the reference coupled model with stratospheric chemistry 
     35 
     36## Other forced configurations ## 
     37 * NEMO : the ocean model including sea ice and marine biogeochemistry 
     38 * ORCHIDEE_SVN_AR5 : the land surface scheme used for the reference CMIP5 simulations 
     39 * ORCHIDEE_TAG  : the latest reference version of the land surface model 
     40 
     41# Workshops # 
     42 
     43## Training courses ## 
     44 
     45The Home group at the IPSL Climate Modeling Center organizes training courses on how to use the IPSL models and tools. These courses aims to cover the content of this documentation. [[BR]] 
     46 
     47 
     48More information, dates and inscription are available here : [wiki:Train]  
     49 
     50## External courses ## 
     51 
     52Computing centers such as IDRIS organize workshops on supercomputing. Those workshops might be useful to all users of the models and tools presented here (Fortran, MPI/OMP). Some IPSL model development teams also offer workshops on how to use their particular model. More information can be found here: 
     53 
     54 * Technical workshops  
     55   * Fortran, MPI/OpenMP, etc : http://cours.idris.fr 
     56   * Workshops organized by the "maison de la simulation" : http://www.maisondelasimulation.fr 
     57   * Workshops organized by the PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs)  http://www.training.prace-ri.eu/ 
     58 
     59 * Workshops on IPSL models 
     60   * LMDZ : http://lmdz.lmd.jussieu.fr 
     61   * ORCHIDEE : http://forge.ipsl.jussieu.fr/orchidee/wiki/Contact 
     62   * INCA : http://www-lsceinca.cea.fr/pp_contact.html 
     63   * NEMO : http://www.nemo-ocean.eu/About-Us 
     64# Mailing List # 
     65 
     66There are two mailing lists: 
     67        * '''Home-users''' : the subscription to the list is open to everyone: [http://courriel.ipsl.jussieu.fr/mailman/listinfo/platform-users http://courriel.ipsl.jussieu.fr/mailman/listinfo/platform-users] . The purpose of this list is to organize and facilitate the communication between users of the IPSL models and tools (in particular libIGCM and modipsl). Discussions in French or in English are open to all users. Messages can be posted at platform-users_@_ipsl.jussieu.fr. 
     68 
     69        * '''esci''' : this list provides the latest information on ongoing developments. Subscription is available on request (esci_@_ipsl.jussieu.fr) for users who want to take part in these developments. 
     70 
     71# How to use the IPSL Climate Modeling Center models and tools # 
     72 
     73 * Check your computing resources (e.g. computing time, disk quota) available at your [wiki:DocBenv computing center] 
     74 * Find the model configuration you need (several configurations might suit your project) 
     75 * Let the person in charge of this model configuration know that you are planning on using it 
     76 * Install the reference configuration and perform a first test simulation  
     77 * Check that this first simulation ran successfully and plot the outputs 
     78 * Change this configuration step by step to adapt it to your project needs 
     79 * A recommended starting point is [https://forge.ipsl.jussieu.fr/igcmg_doc/attachment/wiki/Train/TD_LMDZOR_v5.pdf the worksheet of the "Basic" workshop]. This worksheet contains the necessary commands to install and run a reference simulation in the LMDZOR configuration.

     81The present manual should allow you to master these steps.
