CMIP Fast Track drop-in (05:00 UTC)
30 November @ 5:00 am – 6:00 am UTC
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 community drop-in session, CMIP Panel members will present the first version of the proposal of AR7 Fast Track experiments (CMIP AR7 Fast Track v1) and then open into an interactive question and answer session. The session is aimed at supporting the current consultation and survey for modelling centres/groups, but all members of the community are welcome to register and attend.
The first of the sessions will be held 05.00-06:00 UTC on Thursday 30th November with a second session on at 17:00-18:00 UTC (see the event page for the second session by following this link). The two sessions will be the same, so you only need to register for your most convenient time.
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.
