AGU23 Townhall: Co-creating the future of CMIP
12 December, 2023 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm PST

The World Climate Research Programme’s (WCRP) Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) has coordinated international climate model experimentation, to develop a better understanding of past, present, and future climate change. Over four decades, CMIP has grown in scope and complexity, targeting climate science addressing the WCRP objectives and serving IPCC Assessments.
Work has commenced on CMIP7 planning. The project aims to meet the growing community needs, enabling climate science and providing actionable climate information to aid policymakers. To facilitate next steps, the two panels that oversee the project, the CMIP and Working Group on Coupled Modelling (WGCM) Infrastructure (WIP) Panels have established seven Task Teams to guide CMIP7 scope, design, and facilitate infrastructure developments. These aim to increase CMIP’s scientific and social relevance, widen participation, improve data accessibility, and reduce the carbon footprint.
In this Townhall, we will describe ongoing planning, highlight engagement, and feedback opportunities, and invite attendee feedback. The Townhall will be presented by members of the CMIP and WIP panels, and our seven CMIP Task Teams. We strongly encourage those across the community to join this session, including modelling centre representatives, infrastructure providers, and early-career researchers. Your feedback will influence future CMIP phases to ensure utility and accessibility.
Please note, to attend you must have registered to attend AGU23.
