#230 closed New feature (fixed)

ERA5 retrieval with ECMWF Web API is deprecated; new CDS API is needed

Reported by: anphi Owned by: anphi
Priority: major Milestone: flex_extract_v7.1.2
Component: flex_extract Version: flex_extract_v7.1
Keywords: Cc:


With the end of February 2019, ECMWF will terminate their ECMWF Web API access to ERA5 data.

This is because the C3S (Copernicus Climate Change Service) has build a new service, the Climate Data Store (CDS)
Up to now, they provide online access to a limited set of ERA5 pressure and single level data.
The rest is still archived in MARS on ECMWF servers.
At some point in time, they will move all ERA5 data to the CDS.

Therefore a new feature for flex_extract have to be added to support ERA5 data download with the new CDS API

Is there any progress on this topic? Is it possible yet to use data from the CDS for Flexpart?

  • Milestone flex_extract_v7.1 deleted
  • Priority changed from critical to major
  • Type changed from Task to New feature
  • Version changed from flex_extract_v7.0.4 to flex_extract_v7.1

Unfortunately, there is no progress with accessing model level data through the Copernicus Climate Data Store. As soon as model level data will become available, we will provide the possibility to obtain them via cdsapi!
