Re: GFDL Agg Server

Hi John,

I have a question for you. I am trying to access the GFDL datasets, which apparently are being served through an aggregation server. When I asked for a thredds file for the collection, they sent me the front page for the collection, which references a thredds file, so I thought I was all set. It is the configuration file for the server, so it is not quite what I wanted, but the aggregation instructions are metadata so there is no real problem. Except that most of the datasets are added through includes, which means the file does not function as a THREDDS catalog for most of the datasets.

Is there a simple way of getting the catalog that I want, i.e. a THREDDS file that describes the whole collection?

Hi Benno,
we use only this thredds catalog file. All IPCC datasets are inserted there through include files.

Can you create the expanded version? I cannot see the include files from outside, thus the file does not function as a catalog of what GFDL has available.


Also, the LAS server you presented at GO-ESSP had a THREDDS link, but I cannot find it on your website.

Hi Benno,

Thanks for kind words, I also had very pleasant and useful time. The URL of THREDDS catalog is
http://nomads.gfdl.noaa.gov:8080/thredds/dodsC



Hi Sergey,

Thanks for the url.

http://nomads.gfdl.noaa.gov:8080/thredds/dodsC

certainly points to the datasets of interest. But it is not in thredds format.


http://nomads.gfdl.noaa.gov:8080/thredds/dodsC/catalogConfig.xml

is in thredds format, but it does not point to all the datasets of interest (IPCC datasets are all missing, for example). Can you point me to a thredds file that has all the datasets in the url you sent me?

Hi benno:

sorry its taken so long to reply, ive been on vacation.

the agg server does in fact send back the entire configuration file, which is a valid catalog. the trick is that the aggregation info is inside a metadata element. this info is useable only by the server itself, so you should ignore it. you should instead access the dataset through the server itself, using the dataset URL in the normal way sorry thats so confusing.
