GFDL’s IPCC AR6 Models and Data Contributions

The foundation for each Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Working Group I assessment report is data gleaned from complex climate models. The models are brought together via the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP): an international effort to improve climate modelling by comparing multiple model simulations to observations and to each other. Each participating modeling center must agree to run a common set of designated experiments. The sixth such project, known as CMIP6, was used in support of the 6th Assessment Report. Data from all of these experiments are available to the public.

GFDL contributed five models for AR6
