Dear Eleanor,

It was very interesting to chat earlier and to hear about the work you are involved in and its relationship with the data and research areas that we work in.

The details of the workshop that I mentioned are located at:


Below is the e-mail that we have sent out about the workshop.

Please consider whether yourself or colleagues might wish to attend, and please do circulate this to your contacts list. It would be great to have a diverse range of business and entrepreneurial interests involved.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,


The British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC) is running a one-day workshop (11:00 to 15:00) at the BMI in Birmingham on 5th March around the theme of:

 "Deriving value from the latest Climate Simulation archives"

This will focus on the CMIP5 (5th Coupled Model Intercomparison Project) and CORDEX (CO-ordinated Regional Downscaling EXperiment) archives.

In a previous workshop we identified some of the needs of the non-academic users of these archives in terms of derived products and services. In this workshop we will share information on the development of our datasets, products and tools with a mixture of scientific users, technology providers and other interested parties.

We will cover the following topics:

* Sharing information about the CMIP5 archive:
   - datasets
   - derived products: such as averages and indices
   - tools and services: web-tools to interact with the archive

* Potential use of regional data from the CORDEX regional modelling project:
   - overview and schedule
   - exploitation plans
   - potential for new tools and services

* Discussing user experiences, requirements and future work:
   - CMIP5 and CORDEX
   - CMIP6 requirements

We would like to hear about the needs and experiences of users working with the CMIP5 dataset archived at CEDA/BADC. You are also welcome to give a presentation on your work. The workshop is free to attend.

At CEDA/BADC, we are providing one of the international data nodes for the 5th Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5). This project is currently generating by far the most comprehensive, and up-to-date archive of global climate simulations available. Data from both historical and future climate experiments is being provided by the best climate models from around the world, providing the potential for numerous applications.

Please let me know if you, or any of your colleagues, would like to attend.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
