Support services for OASIS are provided by IS-ENES3 and ESiWACE2.
Within IS-ENES3, active user support includes documentation, tutorial, FAQs and user forums, easy access to OASIS software sources, and personal help to efficiently use the software. For details, please refer to the OASIS homepage. Two 2-day training sessions at Cerfacs and 9 PMs of OASIS3-MCT Dedicated User Support are also planned over the project duration.
Within ESiWACE2, technical help is offered to upgrade or enhance the implementation of OASIS3-MCT in coupled models. 4 PMs of such support will be offered over the project duration. A Small Private On-line Course (SPOC) has also been set-up.
For Dedicated User Support, see the specific page on the OASIS web site.
For more information on face-to-face trainings and SPOCs, please see the OASIS3-MCT training page.
The OASIS coupler is a software allowing synchronized exchanges of coupling information between numerical codes representing different components of the climate system.

Support services for Cylc are provided by IS-ENES3 and ESiWACE2.
Within IS-ENES3, those services include (i) support in initial decision making and planning, (ii) remote support via email or the cylc online forum and hands-on remote problem analysis where this is possible, (iii) consultancy to encourage best practice and support adoption of good suite design and (iv) enhancements to the documentation (including training material) based on community feedback.
Within ESiWACE2, technical help is offered to upgrade or enhance use of Cylc. 6 PMs of such support will be offered over the project duration.
Anyone looking for support in using or evaluating Cylc is invited to contact the Met Office (email@example.com) to discuss their specific requirements.
If you have any general questions about Cylc you are encouraged to use the Cylc forum (https://cylc.discourse.group/).
Cylc (“silk”) is a Python based workflow engine and meta-scheduler to manage a set of dependant tasks that need to run in a given order and deal with exceptions.
The development priorities have been agreed on with IS-ENES and are available here .

Support services for XIOS are provided by IS-ENES3 and ESiWACE2.
Within IS-ENES3, user support including web services (e.g. on-line download, documentation, installation information, hints for best practices, …) and assistance through e-mails, is offered. 4 two-day training sessions are also planned.
Within ESiWACE2, technical help is offered to design, upgrade or enhance the implementation of XIOS in components of current climate models. 2 PMs of such support will be offered in 2021.
XIOS, or XML-IO-Server, is a library dedicated to I/O management in climate codes. XIOS manages output of diagnostics and other data produced by climate component codes into files and offers temporal and spatial post-processing operations on this data. XIOS aims at simplifying the I/O management by minimizing the number of subroutines to be called and by supporting a maximum of on-line processing of the data.
Most of these information have been collected from XIOS´s homepage. They have been last updated on June 15, 2021.

The services provided by IS-ENES3 include:
The Earth System Model Evaluation Tool (ESMValTool) is a community diagnostics and performance metrics tool for the evaluation of Earth System Models (ESMs) that allows for routine comparison of single or multiple models, either against predecessor versions or observations.
The priority of the effort so far has been to target specific scientific themes focusing on selected Essential Climate Variables, a range of known systematic biases common to ESMs, such as coupled tropical climate variability, monsoons, Southern Ocean processes, continental dry biases and soil hydrology-climate interactions, as well as atmospheric CO2 budgets, tropospheric and stratospheric ozone, and tropospheric aerosols. The tool is being developed in such a way that additional analyses can easily be added. A set of standard recipes for each scientific topic reproduces specific sets of diagnostics or performance metrics that have demonstrated their importance in ESM evaluation in the peer-reviewed literature.
The ESMValTool is a community effort open to both users and developers encouraging open exchange of diagnostic source code and evaluation results from the CMIP ensemble. This will facilitate and improve ESM evaluation beyond the state-of-the-art and aims at supporting such activities within the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) and at individual modeling centers.
Ultimately, we envisage running the ESMValTool alongside the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) as part of a more routine evaluation of CMIP model simulations while utilizing observations available in standard formats (obs4MIPs) or provided by the user.
