Call for abstract EGU 2017 session CL5.13: Research Infrastructures and CMIP6
We encourage you to submit an abstract for our session CL5.13: “Towards CMIP6 internationally coordinated climate modeling experiments: the role and use of modeling and observation research infrastructures” at the upcoming EGU (European Geosciences Union) conference in Vienna 23rd-28th April 2017.
N.B.: This will be a PICO session (here you find information and instructions: http://egu2017.eu/pico.html).
The session aims at exploring the role and use of research infrastructures for both model data and observations in preparation for CMIP6, with a particular focus on Earth’s climate system model evaluation.
We expect contributions covering all climate system components (land, ocean, atmosphere) and focusing on:
- Description of the state-of-the-art of the existing modelling, observation and experimental infrastructures and of the cooperations already in place among those.
- Demonstrations of the impacts that the use of such infrastructures bears on scientific research on Earth system/climate.
This session will highlight the scientific common challenges of infrastructures facing the upcoming CMIP6, rather than the technical detail related to the necessary interoperability among Research Infrastructures.
This session is proposed within the frame of ENVRIplus, a Horizon 2020 project bringing together European Environmental and Earth System Research Infrastructures, aiming at providing common solutions to shared challenges.
The relevant page in the EGU programme and a link for abstract submission can be found here: http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2017/session/24418.
The deadline for abstract submission is the 11th January 2017 13:00 CET.
We hope to see many of you at EGU2017!
