CCMVal was a large international effort to improve understanding of Chemistry-Climate Models (CCMs) and their underlying GCMs (General Circulation Models) through process-oriented evaluation, along with discussion and coordinated analysis of science results. The first round of CCMVal (CCMVal-1) evaluated only a limited set of key processes in the CCMs, focusing mainly on dynamics and transport. This dataset collection contains atmospheric chemical model feedback from research centres around the world. CCMVal was part of the World Climate Research Programme's (WCRP), which mission is to facilitate analysis and prediction of Earth system variability and change for use in an increasing range of practical applications of direct relevance, benefit and value to society. This project was coordinated by SPARC (Stratosphere-troposphere Processes And their Role in Climate) as a core project of the World Climate Research Programme.
