Overview
Version 1.0  Drafted by  John Scinocca and Tim Stockdale This is a draft protocol for a set of five QBO experiments, and is based on the outcome of discussions at the QBO Modeling and Reanalyses Workshop, Victoria, March 2015. The motivations and goals of t...

Experiment List & Goals
Version 1.0  Drafted by  John Scinocca and Tim Stockdale a)Present-Day Climate: Identify and distinguish the properties of and mechanisms underlying the different model simulations of the QBO in present-day conditions: EXPERIMENT 1 : AMIP – specified intera...

Experiment Details
Five sets of simulations/experiments have been defined above:     - EXPERIMENT 1 - AMIP,  interannually varying SSTs, sea ice, and external forcing     - EXPERIMENT 2 - 1xCO2, repeated annual cycle  SSTs, sea ice, and external forcings     - EXPERIMENT 3 - ...

Additional Experiments
Some groups may want to conduct additional experiments, to provide further information on the sensitivity of the results to various factors. EXPERIMENT 5A: As EXPT5, but using a coupled ocean-atmosphere model and predicting the SST, instead of specifying ob...

Requested Diagnostics
The  following is a first draft recommendation from Francois Lott: Here is a table of diagnostics, which include the diagnostics requested by the ISSI group initiated by
Joan Alexander a couple of years ago, and from which I started. Scott asked me to itera...

Additional Experiment - Dynamical Cores
These experiments investigate the sensitivity of QBO-like variability in GCM dynamical core to changes or representations of numerics and resolution. The details for this experiment should be discussed here.

Experiment Two - Initialisation Runs
The following experiment attempts to identify those conditions and processes which impact skilful prediction of the QBO. The time length of these runs are seasonal to annual (e.g. 9 months). Discussions ought to include: Common initial state for all model t...

Experiments
The objective of QBOi is to evaluate the sensitivity dependencies of tropical stratosphere variability within current global climate models. In so doing, we anticipate learning more about the modelled dynamics and variability of the tropical stratosphere. O...

QBOi Experiments2
Ultimately the objective of QBOi is to compare the QBO sensitivity dependencies of contemporary global climate models. By doing this we anticipate more will be learned of the modelled dynamics and variability of the tropical stratosphere, and hope that more...
