Plans for CFMIP-2

Clouds On-Off Klimate Intercomparison Experiment (COOKIE)

The EUCLIPSE project has designed some new experiments based on the CFMIP-2 protocol. COOKIE aims to explore the influence of cloud radiation effects on climate and climate change by making clouds invisible to radiation in the amip, amip4xCO2, amip4K, aqua, aqua4xCO2 and aqua4K experiments. For more information, please refer to the COOKIE website.

Following up on the Toulouse meeting we have updated our plans for CFMIP-2. The changes are detailed in The Cloud Feedback Model Intercomparison Project : Summary of Activities and Recommendations for Advancing Assesments of Cloud Feedbacks which is to be presented to the WGCM meeting in Paris in September 2008.

Since the Paris meeting we have been working on our plans for CFMIP-2. These are now detailed in The Cloud Feedback Model Inter-comparison Project- Plans for CFMIP-2 which was presented to the WGCM meeting in Hamburg 3-5th September 2007. Sandrine's presentation was well received, and the discussion is detailed in Sandrine's meeting report.
