A simulation of earth from the Parallel Climate Model (PCM).

Today's scientific challenges are global in nature. Pictured is a simulation of the planet earth from the Parallel Climate Model (PCM). This model, sponsored by the Department of Energy, is the subject of an international Science Grid This Week feature story, "The Earth System Grid: Climate Data for the Global Community." International Science Grid This Week works to inform the grid community and interested public about the people and projects involved in grid computing and the science that relies on it through articles, graphics, links, multimedia and other content. This coupled model consists of the following: for the atmospheric component, NCAR Community Climate Model (CCM); for the ocean component, the Los Alamos National Laboratory Parallel Ocean Program (POP); and for the sea ice component, the Naval Postgraduate School sea ice model.
