3 3 OBJECTIVE Create an interdisciplinary infrastructure that will facilitate the scientific evaluation of complex ESMs TASKS Task 1. Survey of methods and problems in ESM evaluation work Task 2. Creation of support structure to facilitate model evaluation tests Task 3. Provision of cataloguing and access services to observational datasets and evaluation tools Task 4. Pilot study on the implementation of evaluation toolkits on ESM output

4 4 FIRST YEAR PROGRESS T.1 Survey of methods and problems in ESM evaluation work Questionnaires were sent to all major European ESM groups. ESM evaluation areas have been divided among the partners as follows: AA: Clouds, radiation and precipitation CNRS-IPSL: Aerosols and paleoclimate MPI-MET: Surface fluxes DLR: Atmospheric chemistry U. Exeter: Carbon cycle 87% of questionnaires have been received

5

6 Some preliminary remarks Aerosol and carbon cycle properties are evaluated using primarily ground based observations Cloud, radiation, and chemistry properties are evaluated using primarily satellite observations Precipitation and surface flux properties are evaluated using a mix of the two dataset types

7

8 Frequently reported problems Diversity of observational data formats reported as the main problem HDF format of satellite data not compatible with model output analysis tools NetCDF (CMOR comliant if possible) preferred data format

9 9 FUTURE STEPS Task 2. Creation of support structure to facilitate model evaluation tests – Put emphasis on process-based evaluation Task 3. Provision of cataloguing and access services to observational datasets and evaluation tools – Include peripheral datasets and tools not commonly used by ESMs Task 4. Pilot study on the implementation of evaluation toolkits on ESM output
