The uncertainties in the output of the (complex and high-dimensional) models in use must be well-understood. This theme includes topics like model intercomparison, (Bayesian) model averaging, statistical emulation, the study of more tractable models which still capture essential features of the problem, measures for uncertainty (e.g. entropy), and error propagation through models.
A PEN - ESS workshop: “Assessing Paleoclimate Uncertainty”, is being run jointly by the two Past Earth Network (PEN) working groups; Models and Data-Model Comparisons. The aim is to develop collaborative projects between the different communities. The programme will be a combination of lectures and discussion sessions, which we hope will generate both light and perhaps new ideas for collaboration. Visit the Palaeoclimate society homepage here.
The following members have kindly accepted to be the leaders for this working group:
The PEN Models working group has a budget to fund travel, conference sessions, meetings and similar activities for working group members. The working group leaders welcome proposals for this funding which benefit the working group. Please join the working group mailing list to become a member and join the discussion.
