  • 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.

Attendees:

Arnoldo Bezanilla (INSMET, Cuba), Jayaka Campbell (UWI Mona, Jamaica), Dr. John Charlery (UWI Cave Hill, Barbados), Ronald Gordon and Dennis Gonguez(MetService Belize), and Peter Donk (University of Suriname), alongside the 5Cs' Albert Jones, Timo Baur, Joseph McGann and Albert Gilharry.
