CMIP at AOGS2024

23 June @ 8:00 am 28 June @ 5:00 pm Korean Standard Time

Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS) was established in 2003 to promote geosciences and its application for the benefit of humanity, specifically in Asia and Oceania and with an overarching approach to global issues. AOGS2024 will be the 21st annual meeting of the society, held in Pyeongchang, Gangwon-do, South Korea. These annual meetings provide a unique opportunity to exchange scientific knowledge and to discuss important geo-scientific issues among academia, research institutions and the public.

Abstract submission

Abstract submission for AOSG2024 is now open, until 2nd January 2024. Abstract review decisions will be released on 30th January 2024. There is a SGD 35.00 fee per abstract, with a limit of 2 abstracts maximum, per submitting author.

Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words maximum, and should contain only text. More details on the abstract submission process can be found on the AOGS2024 website.

CMIP events

Co-creating the Future CMIP

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. CMIP6, the latest phase, yielded more than 25 PB of data, with contributions from 131 models, from 48 institutions, representing 26 countries.

Work has commenced on future 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 and design and facilitate coordinated infrastructure development. These aim to increase CMIP’s scientific and social relevance, widen participation, improve data accessibility, and reduce the carbon footprint.

We invite our growing community to attend. We will describe ongoing planning, highlight engagement, and feedback opportunities, and invite attendee feedback and participation. The town hall will be presented by members of the CMIP Panel, Fresh Eyes on CMIP group, and CMIP7 Task Teams.

Making the most of CMIP data: analysis, access, and tools

The Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) is an international climate modelling project, designed to better understand past, present, and future changes in the climate. CMIP has grown significantly since its inception. More than 50 modelling centres around the world participated in CMIP6, which has already generated in excess of 14 PB of unique data. From its inception, there has been a focused effort to make the model intercomparison data available to scientists beyond the climate modelling community. CMIP’s reach has continued to grow with an increasing number and diversity range of users.

With more data access platforms and analysis tools being created every year to support the use of CMIP data, it can be difficult to know where to begin. Primarily led by members of the new Early Career Scientists group, Fresh Eyes on CMIP, this workshop will provide an overview of ways to access CMIP data and present some useful analysis tools and methods to help with using it. The key topics across the session will cover:

  1. CMIP experimental structure and MIPs.
  2. Scientific limitations of CMIP data.
  3. Different methods for accessing CMIP data, and their advantages and limitations.
  4. Analysis and evaluation tools.

In this workshop, participants will learn about CMIP data and how to access and analysis it efficiently. The session will be interactive with a lot of time to ask questions in between presentations, videos, and live demonstrations. The session is open to anyone who wants to use CMIP data from any sector.
