-GlacierMIP is a CliC Targeted Activity

GlacierMIPKickOff Day2 1The report of the Glacier Model Intercomparison Project (MIP) Kick-off Workshop is now available. The Workshop was held on June 26 & 27, 2015, during the 26th General Assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) in Prague. The objective of the workshop was to lay out the overall plan for GlacierMIP over the coming years. This meeting brought together – for the first time – many of the participants and provided a forum to specify further details of our planned activities. The goals were met by defining a list of activities for the future and in particular defining the next steps for an intercomparison of existing global model results.

During the workshop, it was agreed that there will be three tiers to this targeted activity:

  • Tier 1: Intercomparison of published results
  • Tier 2: Dedicated experiments for projections (and potentially, reconstructions)
  • Tier 3: Dedicated sensitivity experiments.


More details on what happened at the Workshop are available in the report. The GlacierMIP participants will meet again at the 2015 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco, in December (date  to be determined).
