Ecosystem Model-Data Intercomparison Working Group on Data - Synthesis, Formats, and Establishment of an EMDI Server Facility

Principal Investigators:

Kathy A. Hibbard

We propose to conduct a 4-5 day Working Group to promote an Ecosystem Model-Data Intercomparison (EMDI) activity through which, for the first time ever, a wide range of global carbon cycle models will be compared with measured net primary productivity (NPP). The goals of the EMDI are to compare model estimates of terrestrial carbon fluxes to estimates from ground-based measurements. Proposed tasks include finalizing synthesis for ancillary data sets, agreement on data formats, and establishment of computer server/s (one proposed to be located... more
