Some of the recommendations in the breakout notes included model comparison projects, feeding results to IPCC, and encouraging interoperability. These all seem in line with Chris Field's suggestion on Wednesday that more coordination among modelers would be a good thing.

Would be value in having a loose working group to facilitate coordination and collaboration among researchers studying impacts? If there was value in this, would there be sufficient interest and a critical mass?
