Research in Integrated Assessment Inter-Model Development, Testing and Diagnostics

Funding Program: 

This project supports Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's contribution to Stanford University's multi-institutional, collaborative project to improve the science of integrated assessment modeling. The primary role of LLNL in the proposed research will be to:

  1. Draw on “lessons learned” from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project to provide guidance on good practices in the successful coordination of the proposed model intercomparison exercise,
  2. Provide advice on designing model experiments,
  3. Transfer to this new project, as appropriate, software tools developed for the handling of climate model output, and
  4. Provide advice on diagnostic analysis approaches for treating and displaying output from multi-model ensembles.
Project Term: 
2010 to 2013
Project Type:
