OCB workshop report: Synthesis and Intercomparison of Ocean Carbon Uptake in CMIP6 Models
Climate and Earth System Modeling Centers around the world are currently preparing their state-of-the-art models to participate in the 6th phase of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6), which will inform the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 6th Assessment. An OCB community workshop was held December 8-9, 2018 in Washington, DC to facilitate planning and coordination among the US observational and analysis communities and the various contributing modeling centers in the US (NASA/GISS, NCAR/CESM, and NOAA/GFDL), Canada (CCCMA), and Australia (CSIRO). The report from this workshop provides updates on new observational constraints and model developments; provides guidance on performing and interpreting CMIP6 experiments, and outlines potential community activities and tools to enhance collaboration and maximize the impact of this emerging public database.
