PlioMIP2 investigators and modeling groups

PlioMIP2 model groups: Showing researcher names (lead contact in bold), the institutions involved. Institutes in bold have co-ordination responsibility for a particular model or family of models. If more than one group has specified the use of a particular model, discussion of an appropriate division or work will be led and decided by the nominated co-coordinating modelling group. Also shown are the models that are currently proposed to run PlioMIP Phase 2 experiments.

Other interested participants (in addition to advisory group members):

Frédéric Parrenin - UJF Grenoble, France - conceptual models for understanding model responses

Pat Bartlein - University of Oregon, USA - data/model comparison
