The Scenario Model Intercomparison Project (ScenarioMIP) carries out climate model simulations driven by alternative plausible futures of emissions and land use. The primary objectives of Scenario-MIP are to:
ScenarioMIP is part of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project organized by the World Climate Research Programme, and integrates research across the climate science, integrated assessment modeling (IAM), mitigation, and impacts, adaptation and vulnerability (IAV) communities. For more information on the project, see the ScenarioMIP paper.

The Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) provides a protocol for studying the output of coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulations models. Established by the WCRP Working Group on Coupled Modelling, CMIP provides a community-based infrastructure in support of climate model diagnosis, validation, intercomparison, documentation, and data access.
