The 2007 Chemistry-Climate Modeling workshop will focus on process-oriented validation and comparison of coupled chemistry-climate models (CCMs) and progress in Chemistry Climate Modeling in the stratosphere and troposphere.  This workshop is part of a SPARC activity for CCM Validation (CCMVal) ( ).  Further details on the CCMVal project, including a summary of the 2003 and 2005 meetings are available on the web site.  This activity is aimed at bringing together the expertise of the measurement and process-studies communities to bear on improving our confidence in future predictions of CCMs.  We encourage the participation of global modellers as well as observationalists.

Workshop Goals:  The goals of the workshop will be to: (i) encourage discussion of new observations and new methods that can be used to evaluate CCMs, (ii) discuss progress in the evaluation of current CCMs, (iii) coordinate the planned SPARC Report on evaluation of CCMs, and (iv) discuss and suggest a strategy for CCM simulations for the next round of WMO Ozone and IPCC Climate Assessments.
