Framework Topics

The focus of the workshop will be the continued analysis of the 1948-2004 simulations and validation. The workshop objective is to recommend improvements in existing model parameterizations. The workshop recommendations are to be implemented in new simulations of the 1948-2004 period to be carried out during the second-half of calendar year 2005.

Day 1 of the workshop will involve a comprehensive discussion of results from the Coordinated 1948-2004 experiment.

Day 2 will be dedicated to a discussion of various topics:

  • model calibration and validation approach;
  • model improvement plan;
  • collaboration and coordination of our activity with other MIPs;
  • some internal problems including:
    • project coordination,
    • funding opportunities,
    • research themes,
    • publications.
