AQMEII / HTAP Workshop on Regional and Global Modeling

30 October 2014, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina

Meeting Agenda

Workshop Objectives

  • Review the objectives of the AQMEII3 and HTAP2 experiments and identify common areas of interest

  • Review the status of the HTAP2 experiments, the analysis schedule, and data management procedures

  • Define a timeline for AQMEII3 base case simulations and analysis activities

  • Identify scenarios to be modeled by AQMEII3 participants and develop a timeline for these simulations

  • Define an overall timeline, milestones, and expected outputs for the AQMEII3-HTAP2 collaboration.
