obs4MIPs About Us

Long Name Observations for Model Intercomparison Projects
Description A wide variety of observationally-based datasets are used for climate model evaluation. Obs4MIPs refers to a limited collection of well-established and documented datasets that have been organized according to the CMIP5 model output requirements and made available to the research community in the same way CMIP5 is accessed. Each Obs4MIPs dataset corresponds to a field that is output in one or more of the CMIP5 experiments. This technical alignment of observational products with climate model output greatly facilitates model data comparisons. Guidelines have also been developed for Obs4MIPs product documentation that is of particular relevance for model evaluation. More recently, the World Climate Research Program (WCRP)'s Data Advisory Council (WDAC) has initiated a Task Team to provide governance and guidance to obs4MIPs (see Governance tab).
