WP8 will be concerned with fusing climate models originating in the U.S. and in Europe to form a more complete and powerful supermodel Toward this end we will first enhance the flexible software framework being developed in the US, capable of coupling any pair of corresponding variables in two constituent models; this is an alternate approach to that in WP5. The work naturally divides into three tasks:
- (1) the incorporation of the European models into the US coupling framework,
- (2) enhancement of the supermodelling software framework to couple three-dimensional state-space vectors, and
- (3) training
and assessing the trans-Atlantic climate supermodel.
WP8 is chaired by Ben Kirtman
