Climate Modellers from across the region met at the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC) this week (June 11-12, 2014). The modellers explored the development of user protocols for data access, regional data management, ways in which to consolidate and prepare outputs and a strategy and action plan for the next 5-10 years.
The objectives of the meeting were:
1. To develop and make recommendations on
data output formats for users
mechanism/ protocol for users to access the data outputs
a mechanism for the storage and transfer of interim data between group members
a mechanism to host data at a central site with access to members and users
to develop a protocol and mechanism where users can access data in user-friendly ways
2. To prepare a first draft of a document charting the way forward for the climate modelling group.
