Research Project: Marine ecosystem model evaluation (“MAREMIP”)

Supervisor: Dr Laurent Bopp (Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique)
Secondary Supervisor: Dr Ute Schuster (University of Exeter)

Project Description

T2.1 is a marine ecosystem model evaluation project known as “MAREMIP”. It will be a highly cross-cutting activity drawing on data and expertise from WP1, model development from across WP2, and jointly derived methodology from WP3 (“TERREMIP”). The evaluation will build on previous model simulations and intercomparison projects such as OCMIP, C4MIP, FP6-Euroceans, and FP6-CARBOOCEAN, but also make use of the data available from coupled GCM simulations submitted to the IPCC AR5 multi-model database. The focus will be on developing evaluation techniques to move beyond simply evaluating models towards constraints on future projections.
