CANCELLED: CMIP AR7 Fast Track consultation drop-in for the WCRP community

28 February @ 19:00 20:00 UTC

UPDATE: This event has been cancelled. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. Anyone is welcome to submit questions via:

  1. Submit the consultation with your thoughts.
  2. Leave any questions you want answered before you submit the consultation on our CMIP Q&A forum, and we will get these answered for you as quickly as we can.

The CMIP Panel and WGCM Infrastructure Panel (WIP) continue to shape the CMIP structure and delivery plans in close coordination with the CMIP Task Teams and through regular engagement with WCRP and the wider community.  Reflecting concerns about the burden CMIP6 placed on modelling centres/groups, we have proposed a more continuous approach for model intercomparison along with a targeted “Fast Track” set of experiments designed to set priorities for the running of simulations to align with the needs of IPCC 7th assessment cycle.

In this drop-in session for the WCRP community, CMIP Panel members will present the second version of the proposal of AR7 Fast Track experiments (CMIP AR7 Fast Track v2) and then open into an interactive question and answer session. The session is aimed at supporting the current consultation and survey for the WCRP community, but all members of the CMIP and climate science communities are welcome to register and attend.

The session will be held 19:00-20:00 UTC on Wednesday 28th February.

What is the CMIP Fast Track?

The Fast Track is designed as a compact set of experiments including the DECK and selected experiments from Community MIPs that will support specific needs. The CMIP AR7 Fast Track is intended to specifically deliver to the IPCC 7th assessment cycle.

This streamlined set of experiments is intended to be performed under a strict timeline aligning with the AR7 requirements. Other experiments, not in the Fast Track, need not align with such a strict timeline, although we understand that some modelling centres/groups may choose to align with the AR7 timeline regardless.

The DECK (CMIP “entry card”) and Fast Track experiments are governed and designed by the CMIP Panel in close consultation with the community. It is important to emphasise that the Fast Track selection does not reflect scientific prioritisation of experiments on any basis apart from timeline. Participation in Fast Track and Community MIPs is a choice for modelling centres and participation to the Fast Track is not a pre-requisite for participation to Community MIPs.
