Project Description

Global climate models are at the basis of climate change science and of the provision of information to decision-makers and a large range of users. Within Europe, the European Network for Earth System Modelling (ENES) gathers together the European climate/Earth system modelling community, which is working on understanding and prediction of future climate change.

Climate Earth system models are key tools to understanding climate change and its effects on society and are at the basis of the International Panel on Climate Change projections (IPCC).

ENES, through IS-ENES, promotes the development of a common distributed modelling research infrastructure in Europe in order to facilitate the development and exploitation of climate models and better fulfill the societal needs with regards to climate change issues. IS-ENES gathers 18 partners from 10 European countries and includes the 6 main European Global Climate Models.  IS-ENES combines expertise in climate Earth system modelling (ESM), in computational science, and in studies of climate change impacts.

IS-ENES will use the standards developed by the FP7 ENES METAFOR project "Common Metadata for Climate Modelling Digital repositories".
