     1= ACCESS Oversight Committee - Notes from the 25th March 2021
     2
     3== 1. ACCESS Science Day
     4
     5 * An ACCESS Science Day was proposed with groups meeting, where COVID safe, in key centres
     6 * Possible sessions: 400m and other high-res simulations, CMIP6, Ocean and sea-ice progress, ambitions for next 5-10 years in Australia, updates on ACCESS-NRI, CaRSA, NESP
     7 * Possible two days to cover science and strategy
     8 * Placeholder for June 10 and 11
     9 * R Law, C Franklin and university rep to start organising
     10
     11== 2. Round-table - update on activities and issues relating to ACCESS
     12
     13
     14
     15=== BoM
     16
     17 * BoM are leading a UM GMED Process Evaluation Group (PEG) focussed on the Indo-Pacific with a workshop on 19th April
     18 * GC4 coupled NWP suite now set up on Gadi
     19 * Regional modelling - km scale downscaling (1986-2059 summers) completed for parts of Australia
     20 * UKMO releasing new high resolution modelling suite (RAL3) for testing by partners. Likely ~6 months before it should be used for research applications
     21
     22
     23=== Universities
     24 * Application for Australasian Leadership Computing Grant not successful
     25 * Coupled model with 0.25 degree ocean - needing CSIRO input
     26
     27=== CSIRO
     28 * A present day control run underway with ACCESS-CM2
     29 * ACCESS-ESM1.5 has run some LUMIP (land-use) simulations
     30 * Aiming to clean up ACCESS simulation archives and split data access into separate project from compute (currently p66)
     31
     32
     33=== COSIMA
     34 * Multi-institutional agreement still being finalised
     35 * First configuration with MOM6 regional model developed (South of 37S, 1/20 degree). Initial results look promising, evaluation ongoing
     36
     37
     38
     39=== NESP
     40 * Slow ramping up with attempts to accelerate under encouragement from the Department. Department aware of conflicting timelines on many projects affecting NESP
     41 * BoM lead will be Pandora Hope
     42
     43=== UM partnership activities
     44 * UM user workshop will be week of 14th June
     45 * UM partnership board meeting held recently. Discussed UKMO plans around COP26 and invitation for collaboration
     46 * George Pankiewicz is now Head of Science Partnerships at the UKMO. Joao Teixeira will replace George Pankiewicz as the UM Partnership manager from April 2021.
     47
     48== 3. ACCESS-NRI
     49
     50
     51 * Dale Holland (EO for DVC-RI, ANU) provided an update to the meeting. Plan is to have Board (including government observer) set up and first meeting before July 1st. Funding agreement draft under preparation. Collaboration agreement being prepared and circulated. Possibilities on interim director being discussed. Discussion with NCI on access to resources for NRI and model users.
     52 * Need to be an active part of NCRIS landscape, particularly next roadmap
     53
     54 == 4. Other business
     55 * Need for continuing discussion around understanding the current funding landscape of different programs, including their aims and sources - allowing us all to identify opportunities and avoid duplication
     56 * Next meeting to include a discussion on how to develop a strategy for Australian modelling on a 5-10 year horizon
     57
     58 == 5. Next meeting 22nd April 2021
