  • Description

The workshop will attempt to define needs, procedures, and feasibilities for a systematic ESM evaluation. It will deal with issues such as essential variables, skill score metrics, observational data sets, automated evaluation procedures, methodologies, and needs for infrastructure facilitating model evaluation.

The workshop will be based on a green paper on infrastructural needs and a draft for a review paper on Scientific and Infrastructural Needs in Earth System Model Evaluation. Both documents will form the basis for discussion at the workshop.

A Manuscript on ‘ESM evaluation needs and infrastructure' should be produced and submitted to a peer-reviewed journal.
