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).

Acquiring the Release Code

The source code for CESM releases is distributed through a public Subversion code repository.

A short registration is required to access the repository. After registering, you will receive an email containing a user name and password that is necessary to gain access to the repository.

CESM Data Management & Distribution Plan

The Community Earth System Model (CESM) Data Management and Data Distribution Plan documents the procedures for the storage and distribution of data associated with the CESM project.
