The Dynamics and Variability Model Intercomparison Project (DynVarMIP) is an endorsed participant in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (CMIP6) of the World Climate Research Program (WCRP). DynVarMIP emerged from the DynVar international working group on the modelling of the dynamics and variability of the stratosphere-troposphere system.
Rather than proposing new experiments, the DynVarMIP requests additional model output from existing CMIP6 experiments. This additional output is critical for understanding the role of atmospheric dynamics in past, present and future climate.
The rationale and the diagnostics proposed by DynVarMIP are presented in Gerber and Manzini (2016).
