- During a webserver upgrade we have now removed the "printerfriendly" pages.
- Jun. 19. 2009
- Part of the ERA-interim dataset from ECMWF is now avalable on the national storage facility NorStore.
An overview can be found on the Data Archive pages.

- NoSerC will move all files on the /noserc2 disk on the SGI computers gridur/embla/balder
to the new AIX high performance computer njord. The transfer will start on
December 1., and will be completed within 2-3 weeks. Writing to /noserc2 will no
longer be allowed after December 1. Reading may continue until the SGI computers
are no longer available.
Users are urged to obtain user accounts on njord in order to have continued access
to NoSerC data. See
- Feb. 15. 2006
- More results from RegClim dynamic downscaling based on SRES A2 and B2 model runs,
are now available on the
Effect Research pages.
These results comprise graphical maps for selected surface weather parameters, and
ASCII data for downloading for a selected geographical area covering the Nordic countries.
- Apr. 11. 2005
- New data have been added to the ERA-40 dataset during the last six months. A new
dataset, ECMWF_OPER, representing the operational data produced by the
European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) has been added
to the NoSerC data archive. All these data
are searchable through the MetaMod application,
which is now fully up to date.
- Feb. 10. 2005
- There has recently been problems connected to data transfers between
the /noserc2 disk and external computers through the gridur/embla computers.
Use of sftp or scp directly to the /noserc2 disk has created severe
operational problems for gridur/embla. Use of gridur/embla for such data
transfer work is therefore no longer allowed.
Another computer (balder.ntnu.no) has been set up for data transfer
work to/from the /noserc2 disk. We urge all users to use this machine.
The same copying tools are available on this computer (scp/sftp or ftp
for some subdomains). The /noserc2 disk is also mounted on balder, and
copying should be done directly to/from the /noserc2 disk. Using balder
will also improve stability and transfer performance for the user.
All users on gridur/embla also have accounts on balder. Passwords
may be different, if they recently have been changed on gridur/embla.
If you have problems connecting to balder, please contact NOTUR user support.

- A tool for converting from netCDF format to FELT (the proprietary met.no format)
is now available on
/noserc2/extdata/felles/bin. The name of the tool
nctofelt. More information can be found in the
Format Conversion ... -> nctofelt page.
- May. 4. 2004
- More data from the ERA40 dataset is now available on the NoSerC
storage system. This include main parameters (geopotential, divergence,
vorticity, temperature and specific humidity) at the 23 pressure
levels, as well as many surface or single level parameters. An overview
can be found in the Datasets stored -> ERA40
page. The MetaMod
application gives details about all available files.
- Feb. 2. 2004
/noserc1 directory is no longer available on
gridur, see earlier news.
- Jan. 23. 2004
- The re-structuring of the NoSerC storage system is now completed.
All files are now found under the
tree. Users should from now on only use
both for reading and writing.
/noserc1 directory tree will still be available
(ONLY FOR READING) for some days, so the users have time to
correct scripts etc. The final deadline for access to the
/noserc1 directory is set to January 30. From this
/noserc1 directory will no longer be available.
/noserc1 disks will later be reformatted and
incorporated into the
/noserc2 directory hierarchy.
/noserc2 storage system is divided into several
volumes, where each volume has a maximum capacity. The following
excerpt from the output from a '
df -k' command on
gridur shows the available volumes and their maximum sizes:
max (KB) used (KB) free (KB)

Users should keep an eye on the utilisation of the volumes, and
eventually contact NoSerC in advance of large file transfers, if
more storage space is needed.
