CRC Climate Modeling Workshop Invitation and Agenda
Dear Friends of the Climate Research Committee:
The Climate Research Committee (CRC) of the National Research Council (NRC) and the Office of the U.S. Global Change Research Program invite you to participate on 11 and 12 June 1996 in a discussion of the Quality and Infrastructure of Climate Modeling in the United States. This discussion is being held in Washington, D.C. as part of a meeting of the CRC. Representatives of the federal agencies that support climate modeling are expected to attend this meeting. Those federal representatives, as they allocate resources and organize the government's support of climate modeling, are greatly interested in the thoughts of the scientific community involved in climate modeling. The CRC will also use this discussion as it prepares recommendations to the federal agencies and to the research community of the future of climate modeling. The agenda of the complete meeting follows this
We are working hard to ensure a broad spectrum of scientists involved in all aspects of climate modeling at this meeting and believe that your perspective can provide a valuable contribution to the discussions. We look forward to seeing you.

The Quality and Infrastructure of Climate Modeling in the United States
Climate modeling is a large complex enterprise. It requires modeling not only the atmosphere, but also modeling of conditions at the lower boundary involving the oceans, land surface (especially vegetation), surface hydrology, cryosphere, and sources of atmospheric constituents (such as carbon dioxide, methane, aerosols, and CFCs). Observational data must be obtained, assimilated, and archived. Model development and access must be managed. Model output must be archived, made available, and analyzed. This study session, sponsored by the NRC and the USGCRP, will examine ways to improve the quality and infrastructure of climate modeling in the United States.
