ClimatePrediction.net Modelling The Future Climate

ClimatePrediction.net is gathering data in an effort to produce a forecast of the climate in the 21st century. This is a huge experiment that needs shared computer processing time to process the data.

It works by downloading a climate model that creates a unique world you can watch on your computer while information is sent back to the project for assimilation.

If you’re interested you can take a look at the about page which I recommend for a quick outline of the essentials.

You can also visit the interactive user area for discussions and participation.

From the ClimatePrediction.net website:

  • Why? Climate change, and our response to it, is issues of global importance, affecting food production, water resources, ecosystems, energy demand, insurance costs and much else. There is a broad scientific consensus that the Earth will probably warm over the coming century; climateprediction.net should, for the first time, tell us what is most likely to happen.
