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 integrated Earth system models, to understand the interactions between climate and energy-related activities, and to inform adaptation to shifts in climate and societal requirements.

NOAA’s Fiscal Year 2019 Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO) announcement is accessible via NOAA’s CPO website. The FFO announcement anticipates support of up to two Climate Process Teams, to evaluate, improve, and analyze land components of earth system models such as E3SM and GFDL.  For successful proposals, DOE modeling programs expect to contribute support for DOE...
The Climate and Environmental Sciences Division (CESD) has published its five-year strategic plan for 2018 to 2023. CESD resides within the Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER) of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science and includes  Earth and Environmental Systems Modeling (EESM), which  (formerly known as Climate and Earth System Modeling)....
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced $10 million in funding for 13 projects aimed at further enhancing one of the world’s most sophisticated computer models for understanding weather and climate patterns.  The DOE-supported Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM) seeks to provide more accurate and higher-resolution representation of weather and climate...
A new earth modeling system unveiled today will have weather scale resolution and use advanced computers to simulate aspects of Earth’s variability and anticipate decadal changes that will critically impact the U.S. energy sector in coming years. After four years of development, the Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM) has just been released to the broader scientific...

Program Information

Earth System Modeling

Earth System Modeling (ESM) concentrates on developing Earth system models for high-resolution simulation of the coupled climate system, that effectively utilize DOE's High Performance Computers, in support of DOE mission and science needs.

Regional & Global Climate Modeling

Regional & Global Climate Modeling (RGCM) advances the predictive understanding of Earth’s climate by focusing on scientific analysis of the dominant sets of governing processes that describe climate change on regional scales.

Integrated Assessment Research

Integrated Assessment Models guide understanding of global climate change by addressing its drivers, pace, consequences, and implications. They inform some of the most significant energy, economic, and infrastructure decisions affecting the world today.
