IGBP "MIPs" Catalog

At the 2002 joint meeting between IGBP/GAIM and WCRP/WGCM, it was acknowledged that there are a great many model intercomparison projects (MIPs) ongoing, and that each would benefit from enhanced communication with others regarding methods, protocols, and results. Consequently it was agreed that a compilation of the various MIPs should be posted as a first step toward constructing a "toolbox" of techniques for model intercomparison to be made available to the community at large. 0 The list below is an initial draft of such a compilation. Additional details can be found on the GAIM web site at http://gaim.unh.edu at the bottom of "GAIM Projects". If there are any major Earth system related model intercomparison activities that you can add to this compilation, or that are listed but have evolved to something else, please contact the GAIM office.
