Research Project: Terrestrial ecosystem model evaluation (“TERREMIP”)

Supervisor: Prof Pierre Friedlingstein (University of Exeter)
Secondary Supervisor: Dr Laurent Bopp (Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique)

Project Description

T3.1 is a terrestrial ecosystem model evaluation project known as “TERREMIP”. It will be a highly cross-cutting activity drawing on data and expertise from WP1, other WP3 tasks, and will utilise a common methodology developed in close collaboration with T2.1 (“MAREMIP”). Model evaluation will target the terrestrial components of models used by network partners and will exploit data from coupled GCM simulations submitted to the IPCC AR5 multi-model database.
