Coupled Chemistry Climate Models (Workpackage WP1.1)
Leaders: Neal Butchart (UKMO) & Veronika Eyring (DLR)
During the first phase model validation will be based on transient 1980 to 1999 model simulations already existing before SCOUT-O3 started. These model runs have not used identical model designs, as they have been performed for different tasks. Nevertheless, validating and comparing these runs will allow specific deficits of the individual participating models to be identified.
In subsequent phases the output of SCOUT-O3 runs with agreed experimental design will be analysed. This will allow us to assess the quality of the models and to provide information on the model-to-model variability, in particular with respect to our predictions.
work will be done in conjunction
with the CCM Validation
activity for SPARC (CCMVal).
All CCM groups worldwide are welcome to join in the inter-comparison.
