ScenarioMIP seeks community input on their CMIP7 scenario design

ScenarioMIP are happy to share the ScenarioMIP for CMIP7 proposal for open review and comment.

Over the past year, the ScenarioMIP co-chairs Brian O’Neill, Claudia Tebaldi, and Detlef van Vuuren have worked alongside the Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) to develop the proposal for a new generation of climate scenarios for CMIP’s seventh phase, CMIP7.

On June 20-22, 2023, the first meeting of the ScenarioMIP project under CMIP7 was held in Reading, UK. Participants were primarily members of scenario-related MIPs, including the ScenarioMIP SSC, as well as relevant scientific experts identified by the MIPs, representatives of ESM modelling centres, and leadership of CMIP. A report was published following the meeting, summarising discussions and early plans for the next generation of scenarios.

Following a series of engagements with the ScenarioMIP SSC, Advisory Board, CMIP Panel, WCRP Join Steering Committee, and the wider community, ScenarioMIP are pleased to release the latest proposal for the CMIP7 scenarios.

The co-chairs would like to invite the wider community to consult on their proposal and provide feedback in advance of the planned submission to GMD in the summer of 2024. The proposal and consultation form can be accessed via the buttons below.

This consultation has now closed

Consultation deadline: 13 May 2024
