Current Intercomparison - CMIP5

We are now beginning the process towards the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report and with it the CMIP5 intercomparison activity.

The CMIP5 (CMIP Phase 5) experiment design has been finalized with the following suites of experiments:

I   Decadal Hindcasts and Predictions simulations,
II  "long-term" simulations,
III  "atmosphere-only" (prescribed SST) simulations for especially computationally-demanding models.
