Join us for the TIPMIP 4 All webinar 9. October 2023!
Major uncertainties remain regarding the identification and qualification of climate and Earth system tipping elements, as well as their associated timescales, feedback strengths, and the consequences of compounding interactions between multiple tipping elements. There is thus an imperative demand to advance the modelling of climate tipping points so as to allow for more systematic uncertainty and risk assessments. The Tipping Points Modelling Intercomparison Project will fill these critical knowledge gaps by connecting and evaluating various models under a standardised set of experiments. By doing so, we aim to identify the risk of crossing individual tipping points in the cryosphere, biosphere, and core circulation systems; determine the reversibility of crossing certain tipping points; and, more generally, quantify and qualify critical processes currently underrepresented in Earth-system models and analysis.
At the TIPMIP 4 All event, we will invite interested persons as well as existing TIPMIP collaborators to join in a discussion as we shape and define the project’s multi-year research agenda.
Among other things, we will:
- introduce relevant TIPMIP leadership;
- update participants on the current progress on TIPMIP;
- highlight our recent contribution “Unacceptable Uncertainties for Unacceptable Risks” manuscript outlining the need for a tipping points modeling intercomparison project; and
- invite colleagues to discuss and offer feedback on the existing framework for the TIPMIP protocol and experiments.
