This meeting would not have occurred without the assistance and support of Tsengdar Lee at NASA, and Renu Joseph at DOE. Thanks are also due to Michel Rixen at WCRP for providing additional meeting support. Ferraro’s and Waliser’s contributions to this activity were performed on behalf of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under a contract with NASA. Work by Gleckler and Taylor was performed on behalf of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as a contribution to the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science, Climate and Environmental Sciences Division, Regional and Global Climate Modeling Program, under Contract DE-AC52-07NA27344. Eyring’s work was supported by the DLR Earth System Model Validation (ESMVal) project.
