Opportunities to contribute to CMIP7

  • Priority Variables Consultation

The CMIP IPO invites you to take part in this consultation on priority variables for inclusion within a core set of variables forming the baseline for exchange of climate model data, in any intercomparison project, in accordance with FAIR data and Open Science principles. This consultation is relevant to those involved in developing and operating climate models, data infrastructure and those utilising climate model outputs. We anticipate this is of relevance to those providing access to and/or utilising the outputs of climate models within commercial, public and third sectors as well as within academia.

The online form is available at: https://bit.ly/WCRP-CV-Phase2OnlineForm. Consultation closes 18:00 UTC Friday 23 September. Please do circulate within your relevant networks.  

The work developing the core variables is being coordinated and led by Martin Juckes, UKRI-STFC. Its implementation is being supported by the CMIP International Project Office
