Mailing lists

At the newly formed CMIP International Project Office (IPO), 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 this form.

On the form you will find eight different mailing lists you can sign up for. If you have previously signed up to any of mailing lists using the above form, and now wish to add your name to others without filling in the form again, please email the IPO using the contact details at the bottom of the page.

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.

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.

Sustainable CMIP

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!

Vacancies and open membership calls

Please sign up to our mailing lists to be informed when opportunities do arise.

Data Request Harmonised Thematic Variables

The task team are working with community representatives to devise a controlled list of high priority variables that facilitate the majority of user needs. Papers across identified themes (provisionally the five listed below) will define a collection of harmonised variables to support the high impact analysis of climate model output, and provide a consistent and robust set of parameters on which to build the CMIP7 archive. Each will be a collaboration between the CMIP Data Request Task Team and the MIPs and communities relevant to each theme.

Find out more about the variable selection process of the harmonised thematic variables here.

Authors and reviewers are being sought for the thematic papers:

Applicants are encouraged to first read the information about the variable selection process of the harmonised thematic variables.

Fresh Eyes on CMIP

The Fresh Eyes on CMIP working group is a new CMIP initiative. This group will sit alongside the CMIP7 Task Teams and integrate the voices of Early Career Researchers, Scientists and Practitioners directly into the design and organisation of CMIP. See more information about the group on their webpage (follow this link). Future Fresh Eyes on CMIP opportunities will be announced on our website and our mailing lists when they arise.

Task Team Stakeholders

If you are happy to engage more closely with the CMIP7 Task Teams as an invited stakeholder, please register your interest by joining the relevant task team’s mailing list above.
