CMIP6 Experiments: Model and Dataset Description


Call for papers





The Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) supports research in climate change and assessment through providing enormous datasets mainly produced by Earth system models (ESMs) and climate system models (CSMs). The new (sixth) phase of CMIP (CMIP6) has been launched and the datasets simulated by the new versions of ESMs and CSMs have been/will be published on the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF). Hence, description and evaluation of the CMIP6 models and datasets is important. This special issue will include introductions to, and progress reports on, the models and datasets participating in CMIP6.


Submissions in, but not limited to, the following research areas, are invited:


evaluation and analysis of CMIP6 DECK and CMIP6-endorsed MIP datasets;

progress and description of the CMIP6 climate models;

description of datasets on the ESGF platform. (Submission to this topic will be categorized as “data description articles”.)
