Validation of the GFDL CM2 model IPCC runs

PI: Konstantin Vinnikov
Institution: University of Maryland
Additional Investigators: Ronald Stouffer, Alan Robock, Norman Grody
CM2.0 and CM2.1 models "the climate of 20th century" runs will be validated using data of long-term satellite microwave monitoring of sea ice (Cavalieri et al., 2003), snow cover (Armstrong and Brozdic, 2000), and the MSU channels brightness temperature (Vinnikov and Grody, 2003; Grody, 2004). Control runs of the same model will be used to evaluate random errors in trend estimates related to natural climate variability. Results will be submitted for publication in refereed journals and provided to the IPCC Lead authors.
