Section 2.10 presents a case study for applying VV&UQ methods to climate models. The introductory paragraph of that section reads,
The previous discussion noted that uncertainty is pervasive in models of real-world phenomena, and climate models are no exception. In this case study, the committee is not judging the validity or results of any of the existing climate models, nor is it minimining the successes of climate modeling. The intent is only to discuss how VVUQ methods in these models can be used to improve the reliability of the predictions that they yield and provide a much more complete picture of this crucial scientific arena.
As noted in the front-matter, since this is a pre-print it is still subject to editorial revision.
