Best Practice Strategies for Process Studies Designed to Improve Climate Modeling

We are pleased to highlight the recently published BAMS Article on “Best Practice Strategies for Process Studies Designed to Improve Climate Modeling,” authored by Janet Sprintall, Victoria Coles, Kevin Reed, Amy Butler, Greg Foltz, Hyodae Seo, and Steve Penny – current and prior members of the US CLIVAR Process Study and Model Improvement Panel – who compiled and distilled a set of practical strategies and lessons learned to help guide planning and implementation of future process studies within the climate science community.

The US CLIVAR Process Study and Model Improvement (PSMI) Panel, through a series of invited webinars, engages scientists who are planning and implementing climate-related process studies and field programs to provide feedback on their plans, gain understanding of challenges encountered, and gather programmatic lessons to help inform planning of future campaigns. More than 30 process studies have participated over the past seven years. Read it here
