Discussion of relation between OMIP diagnostics and the CMIP6 data request.
See https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/38722087/cmip6_ocean/WIP/OMIP_concerns_with_WIP_diagnostics.pdf for concerns raised by Stephen Griffies et al.
The CMIP6 Data Request will be available as an XML file.
An initial distribution of the code is available here via svn: http://proj.badc.rl.ac.uk/svn/exarch/CMIP6dreq/tags/01.alpha.02/ .
Documents describing this initial release are available here: https://www.earthsystemcog.org/projects/wipdatarequest/ .
It is likely that the CMIP6 archive will include data from at least one model with an unstructured ocean grid. Some extensions to the data standards used in CMIP5 are needed. Ice sheet models may also have unstructured grids.
