Conformance: Add extra options under "How this simulation conformed"

Reported by: charlotte Owned by: bryan
Priority: blocker Milestone: V1.0 CMIP5 Questionnaire Release
Component: WP6 - CMIP5 Questionnaire Version: beta
Keywords: beta testing Cc:


Metafor TELCO 17th Dec

Simulation Tab: Conformance: "How this simulation conformed"

Add options for users to be able to say that the simulation

  • conforms by standard model configuration
  • does not conform to a requirement

"does not conform" should be a positive choice.

Context from Mark Elkington:
Sometimes conformance is achieved by a feature inherent in the model (e.g. we calculate the mineral dust aerosol in the aerosol component - there are no inputs and no coupling to other components. Conversely, sometimes a modelling centre will run a simulation and will not be conformant with one aspect of the experiment requirements (e.g. we don't take account of CO2 emissions from volcanoes), or only partially conformant (e.g. not all species covered).

There should be a mechanism to indicate that conformance is achieved through an internal component function, or that the simulation doesn't conform to a specific requirement, or is only partially compliant. The validation report needs to accept that a conformance state has been recorded (i.e. the metadata can be published), but in the case of no (or partial) conformance that this is indicated in the report.

Added this FAQ post:
My simulation doesn't conform to all experiment requirements That's ok. Tell us about how your simulation met the experiment requirements it does conform to and select the "does not conform" description for the requirements that it doesn't conform to.
