is a distributed volunteer computing project for climate modeling that uses spare CPU time on volunteers’ personal computers to run climate models developed by the United Kingdom’s Met Office Hadley Centre for Climate Science and Services.

• Visit to learn how running a climate model on your own computer can increase understanding of how climate is affected by greenhouse gases and other phenomena.

• After your computer completes a simulation run, the data are delivered to scientists and contribute to large ensembles of simulations.

• The Met Office runs this project in collaboration with the University of Oxford, and uses the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing. Thousands of volunteers have generated countless simulations that clarify the causes and trajectory of climate change.
