The YOPP modelling task team is one of several task teams that were established by the Polar Prediction Project (PPP) Steering Group (SG) in order to coordinate activities during the Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP).  The YOPP modelling team was set up to develop a plan for YOPP modelling activities, and to help coordinate activities, particularly between “operational centres” during the YOPP Core Phase.


YOPP Modelling Plan

The first edition has now been published. This outlines plans for a set of reference modelling datasets that will support a range of YOPP scientific investigations, plus plans for modelling experiments that will be carried out during the YOPP Core Phase and Consolidation Phase.

A Common Set of Model Output for YOPP

In order to facilitate comparison between different models, and between model output and observations, all YOPP model experiments should include a standard set of model output diagnostics, which is set out in this document.
