CESM Climate Change Working Group

The CESM Climate Change and Assessment Working Group was formed to coordinate climate change simulations of the CESM. It also has the responsibility to coordinate with the DOE Climate Change Prediction Program-supported climate change simulations. Work is proceeding on using the same model components of the CESM and the DOE-supported Parallel Climate Model (PCM), so that the models will be essentially the same for climate change simulations. The climate change ensemble simulations will be part of IPCC, U.S. National Assessment, and CLIVAR. [Charge]

CESM Project

The Community Earth System Model (CESM) is a fully-coupled, global climate model that provides state-of-the-art computer simulations of the Earth's past, present, and future climate states.

CESM is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Administration of the CESM is maintained by the Climate and Global Dynamics Laboratory (CGD) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
