This weeks Geosciences Talk!!!

Dear Geosciences Faculty, Staff, Researchers, Students, and Alumni:  
Dr. Chris Brierley will be visiting our department this month and intends to give a talk on working with paleoclimate simulation data.  Below are the details:
Presenter: Chris Brierley, Professor in Climate Science, Department of Geography, University College London
Date:  Thursday, May 12, 4:00-5:00 pm, GS 228A
TitleAccessing simulations run for the IPCC, especially from the Palaeoclimate Model Intercomparison Project (PMIP)
Abstract: The Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6) is the organisation that has coordinated all of the scenarios and climate model projections for the recent IPCC report. It involved many different modelling groups from around the world, and many of them have performed past climate simulations for several time defined periods. A substantial quantity of output from these simulations is freely available for download through the machinery of the Earth System Grid Federation. Small subsets of this data are available elsewhere, such as from the IPCC's Interactive Atlas. This seminar aims to help people find and use those data from the PMIP simulations that would be useful for their own research. It will introduce which climate models and periods have been used in PMIP, how to find out what data is available and where, how to download that data and its format, and then highlight some code and tools available to help process that data.
**PLEASE NOTE!  Chris will be around the department from May 11 through May 25 in GS 503 and would love people - especially PhD students – to stop by to discuss their research.  He’s interested in topics ranging in time from the Miocene through to the next million years, and in disciplines stretching from physical oceanography, through meteorology and into climate impacts and climate-economic modelling.”  Please contact Kaustubh Thirumalai if you would like to meet with Dr. Brierley.
