GeoMIP Simulations: Phase 6

The next phase of GeoMIP simulations (named Phase 6 to keep phase with the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6) involves four core experiments. G1ext is an extended version of experiment G1 to focus on longer term changes and to provide better statistics for impacts assessment. G6solar and G6sulfur are designed so the effects of solar dimming vs stratospheric sulfate aerosols can be compared in a multi-model context. G7cirrus explores the newly proposed idea of cirrus cloud thinning. All of these experiments are described in more detail by Kravitz et al. (2015).

Official GeoMIP policy for data use is that if you use output from a particular model within a certain time window, you must contact the modeling group and offer them a chance to contribute as authors. Each modeling group is well posed to understand its model and the intricacies of performing the GeoMIP experiments, so their perspectives will undoubtedly be useful. The modeling groups can be found on the Participants page. For the experiments in this latest phase of GeoMIP, simulations have not been completed yet. Once they have been completed, all modeling groups need to be consulted within one year of simulation completion. A more specific date will be posted later.
