Sea Ice and Climate Modeling Forum on Large-Scale Sea-Ice Simulations, Reading, United Kingdom

Organizers announce a sea ice and climate modeling forum workshop on large-scale sea-ice simulations. The workshop will be held on 26 September 2014 at the University of Reading, in Reading, United Kingdom.

This one-day workshop provides a forum for users and developers of sea-ice models to start a joint effort for improving sea-ice models.

Discussions will include the analysis of sea-ice biases in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) models, determine the most pressing needs for model development, identify the most helpful observational data, and compile a list of the most useful sea ice variables to be saved for CMIP6. 

The workshop is the first in a series of planned activities from the Sea ice and Climate Modeling Forum, which is a World Climate Research Programme - Climate and Cryosphere (WCRP-CliC) initiative that aims to improve and better understand large-scale sea-ice simulations by coordinating a joint effort of the international sea ice modeling community. Following a few short plenary talks, the workshop will consist of breakout group and discussion sessions. 

Registration deadline: Monday, 30 June 2014.
