 +===== Focus of the P2F Working group =====
  
 + Aims and Scope v2.1, July 2014. Compared to v2.0, the strategy has been slightly revised to include consideration of processes and explicitly include comparison with data. 
 + See below in Previous Aims and Scopes section for v2.0, June 2014, which resulted from the PMIP3 meeting, 25-30 May 2014, Namur, Belgium. ​
 +
 +==== The P2F challenge ====
 +
 +To use paleoclimate information to improve predictions of climate change
 +
 +==== Strategy - methodology ====
 +
 +  - Identify and document quantitative relationships between past and future runs and check consistency with available observations.
 +  - Identify and implement suitable methodologies to use the information to explore quantitative constraints on future climate change.
 +  - Identify whether underlying mechanisms between past and future changes are the same.
 +
 +* Code for methodologies should be fully published to enable participation of others
 +==== Targets ====
 +
 +  - Estimating future climate by exploring information from multiple PMIP intervals.
 +  - Exploring divergent estimates of climate sensitivity - towards reconciliation.
 +  - Predicting regional climate change - beyond climate sensitivity
 +
 +* More targets? This is open to development later.

 +
 +==== Other things ====
 +
 +* Considerable interaction with the rest of PMIP will be required.
 +  * Model and data from all intervals needs to be publicly available.
 +  * P2F analyses focus on quantitative methodologies so will require input from process based experts
