On 15-16 August 2019, Beijing Normal University will host the ninth annual meeting of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP) – a recognized component of the CMIP6 suite of climate simulations undertaken by about 15 Earth system modeling groups to date. International experts will come together to discuss the state-of-the-art in modeling solar geoengineering, with a focus on GeoMIP simulations and results from comparisons of models. This will be the first international geoengineering research meeting held in Asia, recognizing its important contributions made in the field in recent years, and will take place over a day and a half, followed by a public event on Friday evening at Beijing Normal University. The meeting will be an opportunity to suggest and discuss contributions to CMIP6 and propose new experiments to the GeoMIP suite such as an “overshoot” scenario.
This meeting will be held in conjunction with “Geoengineering the Climate: Impacts and the Developing World,” the second geoengineering summer school to be held at Beijing Normal University. Participants in the summer school and the GeoMIP workshop will have the opportunity to interact and build collaborations.
Scientific Organizing Committee
John Moore (Beijing Normal University), Duoying Ji (China’s geoengineering program), Ben Kravitz (Indiana University), and Alan Robock (Rutgers University).
The GeoMIP meeting is open to any participants interested in model intercomparisons of solar geoengineering methods. Experience with solar geoengineering is not necessary. If you are interested in attending, please email John Moore () and Ben Kravitz () to get your name on our list. A limited amount of travel support is available for participants who otherwise would not be able to attend. If you believe you will need travel support, please describe your needs when confirming your desire to attend.
All applications need to be received by March 30 for full consideration.
