Bader, D., J. Fein, M. Ji, T. Lee, S. Meacham, and D. Rind, 2003: Modeling strategy. In Strategic Plan for the U.S. Climate Change Science Program. U.S. Climate Change Science Program, U.S. Department of Energy.

This chapter introduces goals and objectives intended to provide accelerated scientific improvements in climate and climate impact models responsive to the needs of the Climate Change Science Program's (CCSP's) scientific research and decision support activities.

The CCSP modeling strategy consists of three goals: Improve the scientific basis of climate and climate impacts models; provide the infrastructure and capacity necessary to support a scientifically rigorous and responsive U.S. climate modeling activity; and coordinate and accelerate climate modeling activities and provide relevant decision support information on a timely basis. In order to achieve these goals, three modeling arenas will be implemented: 1) diverse and disparate research activities that represent new process understanding in models; 2) assimilation and integration efforts that employ new types of observations and tools and next generation understanding and model coupling; and 3) "high-end" climate models run for scenarios required in periodic scientific assessments or to achieve higher resolutions.
