At the newly formed CMIP International Project Office, we are working hard to make CMIP a more open, inclusive community. Part of this work is focussing on our communications so that we can advertise our opportunities, news, and events to anyone who might interested.
To achieve this we have set up new mailing lists which are open to everyone. To sign up for our mailing lists please fill in the form at the bottom of this post, or follow this link to open the form in a new tab.
On the form you will find nine different mailing lists you can sign up for:
CMIP Community News:
The CMIP Community News mailing list is our primary list for sending out communications across the CMIP network. On here, we will advertise opportunities to get involved with CMIP7 and give feedback on previous phases of CMIP, promote events we are organising, and share news from colleagues around our community.
We look forward to engaging more closely on the sustainability of CMIP with the climate modelling and science communities as we work towards preparing future phases of CMIP.
We are following closely the work, and publications, of the H2020 IS-ENES3 dedicated project and CPMIP activities (Acosta et al 2022; Balaji et al 2017). If you are aware of others, let us know -contact details in the footer.
We’re currently reviewing how to calculate the carbon footprint from the modelling activities of CMIP6. This is would have been much easier if it had been planned in advance. Therefore, we also want to get ahead of the curve when planning CMIP7.
Whilst the computational carbon footprint for CMIP is significant, it is not the only activity which emits CO2. We also must consider additional activities such as travel and online meetings.
If you’re interested with being involved in discussions around making CMIP sustainable for the future, register your interest by joining our Sustainable CMIP mailing list and let us know your ideas -and upvote those you like here!
Task Team mailing lists:
There is also the opportunity to join specific CMIP7 Task Team mailing lists. These mailing lists will be utilised by our Task Teams to share any specific collaboration opportunities they may have available. Details on the scope of each task team can be found on their relevant webpages here.
We at the CMIP-IPO look forward to engaging more closely with the climate modelling and science communities as we work towards preparing future phases of CMIP.
