Session 5: Papers and next steps
  1. Should there be a special issue, a summary paper, etc?

  2. What is still being run? Do we have critical mass on simulations aside from ACCMIP_1 (e.g. ACCMIP_2, ozone precursors, sectoral, flux perturbations)?
    What are highest priorities?

  3. For future phases, should we expand discussions with IAM groups about additional scenarios that could be explored by ACCMIP models?

  4. General discussion of the archive, the wiki, model documentation, etc.

  5. IGAC/SPARC Davos meeting

    • plans for model/observation comparisons

    • Do we have the infrastructure to form the comparisons?
