General information and objectivesThe JSC/CLIVAR Working Group on Coupled Modelling reviews and fosters the development of coupled climate models, including organization of model intercomparison as a basis for model validation and diagnosis of shortcomings (e.g. the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, CMIP). WGCM also promotes co-ordinated studies of and experimentation with coupled models aiming to achieve more confident projections of the response of the climate system to changes in natural and anthropogenic forcing. WGCM maintains an overview of modelling activities in the WCRP as a whole.
