WP1: Evaluation techniques & Climate model experiments

Work package 1 will provide new evaluation tools and climate simulation data for the cloud feedback analyses:

  • New algorithms, referred to as satellite simulators, will be developed that produce cloud data from model simulation output that can be compared unambiguously to various satellite-derived cloud data.
  • New diagnostic evaluation techniques incorporating process-oriented evaluation of the cloud-climate feedbacks in global simulations will be developed.
  • New ESM simulations specially designed to evaluate the cloud-climate feedbacks are planned with the participating ESMs in EUCLIPSE. These simulations will incorporate the newly developed simulators.

WP1 is chaired by George Tselioudis
