The Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) of the World Climate Research Programme is an international climate modelling project designed to better understand past, present and future changes in the climate.
CMIP has been coordinating model experiments across the climate science community since 1995. Over the years, it has become one of the cornerstones of climate science worldwide, providing crucial information to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Preparations for the seventh phase of the project (CMIP7) are well underway.
