Modelling paleoclimates and the transitions between different climatic states still represents a challenge for models of all complexities. At the same time, the past offers a unique possibility to test models that are used to predict future climate.
We invite papers on paleoclimate model simulations, including time-slices (as in the Paleoclimate Modelling Intercomparison Project or PlioMIP) and transient simulations of climate variations on timescales ranging from millennial to glacial cycles and beyond. This session has its focus on (but is not restricted to) the Cenozoic and Cretaceaous.
Comparison of different models (complex GCMs, EMICs and/or conceptual models) and between models and data are particularly encouraged.

This session has two partner sessions: "CL4.4 - Using paleoclimate modelling and data to learn about the future" (organised by J. Hargreaves et al) and "CL1.4 - Climate response to orbital forcing" (convened by E McClymont et al).
