pdf Draft Workshop Agenda (122 KB)  (10 October 2017)

#GreatAntarcticClimateHack will be held October 9-12, 2017 at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography Forum, La Jolla, CA. Our first-ever Climate Hack will focus on bringing Antarctic and Southern Ocean observations to bear on evaluating the latest generation of climate and earth system models, producing new climate model metrics for the 21st century.

#GreatAntarcticClimateHack is a workshop to train non-modeling experts to use observational datasets to interrogate CMIP model results, thereby creating new model metrics and validation tools. The aim of the workshop is to facilitate preparation for the next IPCC report for a much broader science community, increase non-traditional climate modeling publications, and learn to apply/utilize data sets that help develop model validation skills. This first workshop will accommodate 50 participants on site, and 50 participants to join remotely online.
