Request from the Evaluation and Diagnostics Scientific Working Group

As part of its activities, in August 2019 the Evaluation and Diagnostics Scientific Working Group (SWG) started surveying the members of the IAMC with regard to teams’ approaches to model validation.
Given the diversity of models and modeling approaches, the approaches to model validation are expected to be similarly varied. The SWG would like to begin to get a better idea of how models approach the problem with an eye toward sharing approaches.

For this purpose, IAMC Members were requested to put together a short summary in the form of a PowerPoint document with one to two slides summarizing individual teams approaches.
Slides should be sent ot the IAMC Secretariat at iamc@cmcc.it by November 1st, 2019.
The SWG intends to hold a discussion on methods and approaches at the next IAMC Annual Meeting.
Responses will be used to develop a summary of approaches.
However, responses will not be shared without explicit permission from the submitting modeling team.

A copy of three examples, from the AIM, GCAM and REMIND modeling teams is available here.
