Support, Software, and Data

User support

The Simulation Laboratory Climate Science provides user support for the atmospheric science community. This includes:

  • Technical advise for supercomputing projects at JSC.
  • Participation in the "Simlab Support Calls" issued by JSC.
  • Support for community codes used for atmospheric modelling.
  • Support for simulation codes for atmospheric radiative transfer.
  • Maintenance of metorological reanalyses and satellite data archives.

Supported Codes

The team members can provide assistance for these simulation codes:

  • Chemical Lagrangian Model of the Stratosphere (CLaMS)
  • ECMWF-Hamburg global climate model (ECHAM)
  • Icosahedral non-hydrostatic general circulation model (ICON)
  • Modular Earth Submodel System (MESSy)
  • Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF)
  • Reference Forward Model (RFM)

Code Development
