December 2016: DeepMIP database operational.

Discussion with Marum Bremen group currently ongoing.


December 2016: DeepMIP model experimental design published.

Currently in review: http://www.geosci-model-dev-discuss.net/gmd-2016-127/


September 2018: DeepMIP proxy data methodology paper submitted (or at least put on the DeepMIP webpage).

This will provide a brief overview of the various proxies to be used, and the issues associated with them.  Also a justification of the time windows chosen, guidance on the treatment of uncertainties, and an overview of the database.  Could be submitted to GMD as a companion to the experimental design paper.  They have a manuscript type: “Papers describing data sets designed for the support and evaluation of model simulations are within scope.”


2017 – May 2019: Individual proxy record papers submitted.

These papers will describe and discuss proxy records which cover the DeepMIP intervals.  These papers are not necessarily formally linked to DeepMIP in any way, but they will be of interest to the DeepMIP community.  DeepMIP may provide part of the motivation for some of them.


2017 – May 2019: DeepMIP individual model simulations papers submitted.

These papers will describe an overview of the results from individual model simulations, including how the boundary conditions were implemented. See http://www.geosci-model-dev.net/5/1109/2012/ for an example.


May 2019: Deadline for proxy records to be submitted to the DeepMIP database.


September 2019: DeepMIP proxy data overview paper submitted.

This will be an overview of all the proxy records associated with DeepMIP.  An EECO/PETM/LP “Atlas” will be produced which characterises the climate (primarily temperature) in these three intervals from a proxy perspective.  Could be two papers focusing on marine/terrestrial.


September 2019: DeepMIP model results overview paper submitted.

This paper will focus on the model results – cataloguing the ensemble results and means, investigating the reasons for the similarities and differences between the models, and the mechanisms associated with polar amplification and other features.


December 2019: DeepMIP model-data comparison paper submitted.

This will be a detailed model-data comparison across all temperature proxies and all models.  We will explore biases which are consistent across models, as well as regions where the models perform well.  For those models which best match the data, we will aim to understand why this is the case.


December 2019: IPCC deadline for papers to be submitted.


September 2020: IPCC deadline for papers to be in press.


2020 and beyond: Synthesis papers submitted.

These will explore further aspects of the model simulations and proxies, e.g. ocean circulation, monsoons, vegetation, etc etc.
