Official CESM Policy Statement
All changes to the "official" version of CESM will be brought through a working group with a recommendation to the Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) for approval. Any change must:
- (a) have results freely on the web,
- (b) have code freely on the web when adopted by the SSC,
- (c) have documentation available as soon as possible.
The documentation is the responsibility of the developer.
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 Division (CGD) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
