The CMIP Panel is a WGCM subcommittee charged with overseeing the evolving design of the CMIP experiments and with coordinating the various activities contributing to the science of CMIP.  It works with the scientific leaders of specialized model intercomparisons that contribute to CMIP, and it has traditionally been responsible for identifying experts to develop the forcing datasets needed for some of the experiments.   

The CMIP Panel works closely with the WGCM Infrastructure Panel (WIP), which coordinates infrastructure support for CMIP accross a broad contributor community during the project delivery phase, and is responsible for many of the technical specifications for model output.
