The primary goal of the Community Earth System Model (CESM) project is to develop a state-of-the-art climate model and to use it to perform the best possible science to understand climate variability and global change. We will strive to build a CESM community of users who are interested in participating in this project.
Who We Are
CESM is a fully-coupled, community, global climate model that provides state-of-the-art computer simulations of the Earth's past, present, and future climate states.
The CESM project is supported primarily by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Administration of the CESM is maintained by the Climate and Global Dynamics Laboratory (CGD) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
