MIT's Climate Modeling Initiative
is a collaboration between scientists at
coordinated by the
for Global Change Science, to
develop a modeling infrastructure for the study of the
atmosphere, ocean and climate of the Earth.
An approach that emphasizes modeling hierarchies is pursued, bridging
from simple to complex, but based on a common set of modeling
The development focus of CMI is
hydrodynamical model that can be used to study both the
atmosphere and ocean.
Our approach is wide-ranging encompassing algorithmic,
computational, physical, biogeochemical and technological innovations, drawing
together elements of computational fluid dynamics, statistics,
meteorology, oceanography and computer science.
CMI is directed by
