CMIP 5 dataset and code for R parallelization

The dataset is used as an example of how to parallelize statistical analysis for CMIP data. The code contains all the LSF submission scripts and the R scripts referred to in the NCAR library technical note NCAR/TN-534+STR. The specific analysis conducted is Extreme Value Analysis, but the parallelization framework is generic and can be applied to any grid-point-wise parallelization using the software R.
