Requirement to acknowledge CMIP model data:

When using CMIP model data, acknowledgement similar to the following should be included in your publication:

“We acknowledge the World Climate Research Programme's Working Group on Coupled Modelling, which is responsible for CMIP, and we thank the climate modeling groups (listed in Table XX of this paper) for producing and making available their model output. For CMIP the U.S. Department of Energy's Program for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison provides coordinating support and led development of software infrastructure in partnership with the Global Organization for Earth System Science Portals.”

Full details of the required citation and acknowledgement information for use of CMIP5 model data are given here .
