The contribution of Working Group I to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC WGI AR5) will be completed in 2013. It is expected that AR5 will provide an improved understanding compared to previous IPCC reports and quantitative assessments of climate change. The objective of this Town Hall Meeting is to discuss with the community the priorities that should frame the Department of Energy’s (DOE) investments in climate and earth system modeling that exploit gaps and opportunities from the anticipated outcomes of the IPCC AR5 and likely priorities of the IPCC AR6. Uncertainty quantification, integrated modeling, decadal predictions, and next-generation high-performance computing capabilities are expected to be key elements of the Town Hall Meeting discussions on science priorities.
