For specified locations on Earth, it is now possible to output variables, for instance temperature or radiation or wind, at a very high frequency, a frequency which can be as high as the model time-step (in the order of seconds to a few minutes). As a comparison, over the full Earth, two­ dimensional variables are only outputted every 30 minutes due to the high storage requirement. This high-frequency data logging is needed for model evaluation activities and for the nextGEMS pilot project on solar power. Variables, location and sampling frequency can be chosen according to the user needs, as communicated to the modeling centers. After discussion with scientists and stakeholders, 30 locations were chosen for the high frequency data logging. These locations correspond to sites with high quality observations, with a renewable energy park or locations of previous field campaigns.

The table below shows a list of high-frequency logging site. More information can be found in the Deliverable 8.3.
