Model Intercomparison

AMIP - Atmospheric Model Intercomparison Project

AMIP is a standard experimental protocol for global atmospheric general circulation models (AGCMs).

CMIP - Coupled Model Intercomparison Project

The Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) studies output from coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation models that also include interactive sea ice.

obs4MIPs

obs4MIPs (Observations for Model Intercomparisons Project) is an activity to make observational products more accessible for climate model intercomparisons


input4MIPs

input4MIPs

input4MIPS (input datasets for Model Intercomparison Projects) is an activity to make available via ESGF the boundary condition and forcing datasets needed for CMIP6. Various datasets are needed for the pre-industrial control (piControl), AMIP, and historical, simulations, and additional datasets are needed for many of the CMIP6-endorsed model intercomparison projects (MIPs) experiments. Earlier versions of many of these datasets were used in the 5th Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5)
