CMIP6 Analysis Workshop on 20 and 21 April 2020 at the Met Office in Exeter


This 2-day meeting will bring together UK scientists working on the analysis of CMIP6 simulations to present and discuss their work. The meeting will be organized around the 3 CMIP6 overarching science objectives, with a 4th session targeting the use of CMIP6 simulations in climate impact assessment work and for informing policy. The CMIP6 Analysis workshop sessions will be:

  • How does the Earth system respond to forcing?
  • What are the origins and consequences of systematic model biases?
  • How can we assess future climate change given climate variability, predictability and uncertainty in scenarios?
  • Towards climate impact assessment and policy decisions based on CMIP6.

In addition, we encourage presentations outlining new approaches for analysing multi-model, large data sets, including the development of community tools.

The workshop takes place durin​g the thirtieth anniversary year of the Met Office Hadley Centre for Climate Science and Services and in the lead up to the UK hosting the next Conference of the Parties (COP) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in November 2020. It therefore occurs at a time when understanding the risks posed by climate change are high on both the public and political agendas.

The workshop format will be poster presentations with short (2 minute) oral presentations of each poster. A few keynote presentations will frame each poster session.

We are particularly encouraging Early Career Scientists to present at the workshop.


In addition to the CMIP6 Workshop, on Wednesday 22 April, there will be an:

– ESMValTool tutorial from 9.00-13.00. Further information is available here ESMValTool-Advert-UK-CMIP6-Workshop-2020-final.


The workshop and tutorial can be booked through the registration form. Please note that spaces are limited for the ESMValTool tutorial.

Further information about the meetings will be shown on these web pages.
