Posted: November 11, 2009

BER-sponsored researchers at the Program for Climate Model Diagnostics and Intercomparison (PCMDI) at Lawrence Livermore National Lab (LLNL), are being recognized by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) with a special group award for "leadership in implementing, maintaining, and facilitating access to the Climate Research Program CMIP3 multi-model dataset archive, which led to a new era in climate system analysis and understanding." The award cites Dave Bader (formerly at LLNL, now at ORNL), Karl Taylor, Curt Covey, Jennifer Aquilino, Robert Drach and Dean Williams. The award will be given at the Annual Meeting of the AMS, January 17-21, in Atlanta, GA.
