The high-resolution simulations produce big data sets an instantaneous quality control system is crucial to check for realistic model simulations and their physical consistency. Moreover, easy to access quicklooks are necessary to screen those big data sets for interesting atmospheric situations and features.
These quicklooks are now available (at the swiftbrowser of the Deutsche Klimarechenzetrum DKRZ) and combine the model results with corresponding observations downloaded from different open access online databases. This yields a first impression of the consistency of basic atmospheric parameters such as temperature, humidity, wind speed profiles, precipitation and cloud coverage.
The quicklooks are produced with an online evaluation toolbox that has been developed during the last month is HD(CP)².
