The variables defined as the standard ACMO variables. Data translation tools will be developed for each participating AgMIP crop model which take standard crop model output data and generate a csv (comma delimited) file containing these data.
Most of these data consist of metadata, which describe the management and climate scenarios, and the base data upon which the scenarios are applied. These metadata will be supplied to each crop model as data are translated from ACE harmonized format into model-ready format by the data translation tools. These metadata will be supplied in the form of a comma-delimited ACMO_meta.dat file.
