Abstract:?The High Resolution Model Intercomparison Project (HighResMIP) is now an endorsed MIP in the CMIP6, which aimed to investigate the climate models’ simulation performance improvements with increased horizontal resolution and also to reduce simulation uncertainties based on muti-model ensemble simulations. Five groups in Chinese modeling community have registered in HighResMIP on CMIP6 GitHub website. In this paper, the scientific background, experimental design and participates of HighResMIP are briefly introduced, to provide a reference for researchers who are interested in this project.
