Understanding the Effects of Modern Compressors on the Community Earth Science Model
DescriptionThe Community Earth Science Model (CESM) is an important tool in climate modeling that produces a large volume of data on each simulation. Researchers have increasingly been turning to both lossless and lossy compression as an approach to reduce the volume of data for the CESM climate applications. However, it is non-trivial for users to choose the best-qualified compressor especially because of the advent of many modern lossless and lossy compressors and complicated scientific integrity assessment of climate data model. In this paper, we evaluate 11 state-of-the-art compressors using the quality metrics developed by climate scientists to understand the effectiveness of the compressors on the CESM climate datasets with 4 four different models. Our work also discloses the best compression ratio that can be reasonably achieved while meeting these strict quality requirements.
