ESM-SnowMIP workshop in San Francisco, Dec 10, 2016 (prior to AGU)
We are currently at the final stage of preparing site-scale simulations for selected representative northern hemisphere sites with long (multi-annual) observation time series. We hope to provide you with a detailed protocol and links to download the forcing data during the next few weeks.
An ESM-SnowMIP workshop was held in Fort Mason, San Francisco, on Dec 10, 2016 (Saturday prior to AGU). Topics of the workshop were:
- Presentation and discussion of first preliminary site simulation results
- Analysis strategies for site and global-scale simulations, identification of leaders of these analyses
- Planning of global-scale offline and coupled ESM simulations
- Links to CMIP6 sub-projects: LS3MIP (land-surface, snow and soil humidity) and ISMIP6 (ice sheet modeling)
We hope that all modeling groups and snow observation specialists contributing to ESM-SnowMIP will be able to participate in the workshop.
