Our first meeting covered a large range of expertise and angles and covered a lot of the required groundwork. It was decided that future meetings could benefit for more focussed topic, such as the Villefranche-sur-Mer (2011) meeting's focus on ENSO.
12-14th March 2014, London
This workshop discussed the potential of paleovariability as a focus for data-model comparisons. It started by discussing the relevance of data and model output; followed by results from prior attempts at comparison. It finished by making recommendations for groundwork that needs to be performed to facilitate future data-model comparison with relevant outcomes.
