Atmospheric Chemistry & Climate Model Intercomparison Project (ACCMIP)

Co-Chairs:
Drew Shindell, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and Columbia Earth Institute, Columbia University, New York, NY, USA
Jean-Francois Lamarque, NCAR, Boulder, CO, USA

ACCMIP is providing extensive coordinated model simulations, diagnostics, and evaluations of the effect of short-lived species on climate, in coordination with the climate model intercomparison effort (CMIP5). The main focus is on the role of tropospheric ozone and aerosols, which both have substantial climate forcing that vary widely in space and time.
