[IDV #CBP-513303]: Question about IDV

Dear Paola,

You can find the CMIP5 archive here: https://www.earthsystemgrid.org/home.htm. 
You will need to obtain a login by registering at the site.

At earthsystemgrid.org, under the "Projects" node on the left you can begin to 
navigate through the CMIP5 archive. The CMIP5 data should be in CF compliant 
netCDF and therefore, it should be no problem to view it in the IDV. You can 
download these files (although they can be large) onto your local computer at 
which point you can view them in the IDV.

To view your local file, go to the Data Chooser tab under the IDV Dashboard and 
select the General, Files node. There you can select your netCDF  data and Add 
Source. At this point you should be able to view your CMIP5 data.

Please let us know if this is sufficient for your purposes and keep us 
up-to-date on your progress.

Best Wishes,

Unidata IDV Support
