Climate: Ensemble single-column model system

Goal: To develop a user-friendly single-column model of the global climate model EC-Earth that can be run simultaneously at numerous locations through a web interface.

  • ideal for studying sub-grid scale parameterizations computationally much less expensive than the global climate model — one-year integration <2 min
  • massively parallel: each column is run on a single processor means that one can instantly evaluate a change in the model physics at many different sites to find strengths and weaknesses in direct comparison with observations
  • easy to run without HPC experience
