  • Global Climate Modeling in the classroom – opening presentation for workshop held at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
  • Based on a concept I heard from Kelvin Droegemeier in his keynote talk at the Unidata Summer Workshop 2006, the idea is that we need to provide access
    To advance capabilities (in this case GCMs) for those outside of the large government labs (NASA, NCAR, NOAA, DOE). But, this brings with it many new
    Requirements, that are not so easily met.
  • Primary earth system components simulated by a GCM
  • GCMs are computer programs, mostly written in Fortran and requiring a fairly high level of programming skills to operate, let alone develop
  • EdGCM is a suite of software wrapped around a GCM to make it easier to operate, analyze output and organize large amounts of data/output
  • Design, run and organize experiments through GUI that uses simple metaphors, forms, and spreadsheets
  • Post-Processing of GCM output: Analyze and visualize data
  • The EdGCM website brings many additional capabilities to EdGCM users. A lot of support for using EdGCM and the GCM.
    The birth of a COOPERATIVE effort in global climate modeling that can truly democratize the field.
