Earth System models (ESMs) are global climate models with the added capability to explicitly represent biogeochemical processes that interact with the physical. Earth System Modeling, a definition. Earth system models (ESM) seek to simulate all relevant aspects of the Earth system. In fact, the climate system is driven by more than the physical processes that have conventionally been modelled (such as winds, clouds, land surface, oceans and ice). Environmental Models. To help us understand how the Earth system works and to improve predictions of future environmental change, members of CCfCS work.

Earth System Modeling | Climate and Earth System Modeling
Ice Sheet Dynamics We use observations and numerical simulations to understand the dynamics of the large ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica in the past and predict their dynamics in the future.
A particular focus is on the mass balance of these ice sheets, since earth system modelling has a direct impact on the global sea level.
Interactions of the ice sheets with the ocean, the atmosphere and the solid earth play a key role in understanding their dynamics and for meaningful modeling.
This includes the British Antarctic Survey BASwho are playing a central role in improving the earth system modelling of the cryosphere components e.
Interpolation weights can be generated in ESMF using bilinear interpolationfinite element patch recovery, and conservative remapping methods.
ESMF can associate metadata with data objects. The metadata, in the form of name and value pairs, is grouped into packages, which can be written out in XML and other standard formats. The CMIWG attracted broad participation from major earth system modelling and climate modeling groups earth system modelling research and operational centers.
In a series of meetings held from toCMIWG members established general requirements and a preliminary design for a common software framework.
In order for ACME to develop sustainable and portable earth system modelling, state-of-science software development earth system modelling are important. These developments are expected to be of broad benefit to Earth system as well as other complex, distributed and advanced computational modeling efforts.
Community Projects Supported by ESM ESM supports many code and component developments that are used by multiple modeling groups, and in some cases supported jointly with other sponsors.
The sea-ice Earth system modelling model is a collaborative activity led by scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory together with scientists from several other climate and operational modeling centers and groups.
