CLIMATE AND EARTH SYSTEM MODELING is part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER) Climate and Environmental Sciences Division (CESD). Our focus is on the development, evaluation, and use of regional and global models, development of Earth system models, and development of integrated assessment models to determine the impacts and possible mitigation of climate change.

Climate and Earth System Modeling is supported by three research programs: Earth System Modeling, Regional & Global Climate Modeling, and Integrated Assessment Research. This website will share CESM's climate modeling activities and progress.

Research highlights are now available. Submit a highlight today for your DOE-funded modeling research.
