CESM Societal Dimensions Working Group
The overall goal of the Societal Dimensions Working Group is to enhance CESM and its application in order to improve understanding of the interactions between human and earth systems. The group was started in 2011 with a focus on interactions between CESM and two research and user communities: integrated assessment modeling and water management. More broadly, the group's mission is to foster and sustain dialogue between the CESM community and other communities of researchers and practitioners studying interaction of society and climate change and variability and implementing measures to adapt to or mitigate climate climate.

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).
