PMIP 3 Kyoto Workshop



PMIP 3 Workshop
Kyoto, Japan
Monday, December 6th to Friday, December 10th 2010



The Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project, Phase 3, will hold its first meeting from Monday, December 6th to Friday, December 10th 2010 in Kyoto, Japan. The meeting will be organized around keynote talks, many poster sessions and breakout group discussions.


Workshop topics

The workshop will focus on the PMIP3/CMIP5 experiments (Last Glacial Maximum, mid-Holocene, and the Last Millennium) using GCMs/Earth System Models, their preliminary analyses and their evaluation using new and existing data syntheses. The experimental design is detailed on the PMIP3 wiki:

The following topics will also be discussed:

We also need to coordinate the analyses about the uncertainty of the results with working groups running additional experiments (ice sheets, different forcing for the last millennium etc...) and discuss how we deal with these uncertainties (multi-model versus other solutions?)


The workshop will take place in the Kyoto Garden Palace Hotel. More details are available on the Practical Details page.
