International programs, such as the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) and the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP), organize and manage projects to coordinate numerical experiments, inter-comparison of model results or evaluation of models. Governmental and intergovernmental panel like IPCC produces reports on climate change.

Overview of the IPSL contribution to:

IPSL members co-lead or are strongly involved in:

  • AMMA-Model Intercomparison Project (AMMA-MIP)
  • Aerosol Comparisons between Observatory and Models (AEROCOM)
  • Coupled Carbon Cycle Climate Model  Intercomparison Project (C4MIP)
  • Cloud observations for model evaluation (CFMIP-OBS)
  • Paeloclimate Modelling Intercomparision project (PMIP)

IPSL also contributes to:

  • Chemistry-Climate Model Activity (CCMVAL)
  • Coordinated Regional Climate Dowscaling Experiment (CORDEX)

IPSL researchers contribute as co-authors to many reports:

  • Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC-AR5)
  • Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC-AR4)
  • Third Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC-TAR)
