HTAP Model Simulation and Analyses
This session will focus on the design of the planned HTAP model experiments and analyses, including presentations on the work packages under Themes 2 and 3. In this discussion, we hope to refer back to Wednesday's discussion and consider how we can use the infrastructure to support the science we plan to do and what investments need to be made to support the planned science.
