Working group purpose

The Earth System Modelling Working Group includes researchers from many Australian universities and research institutions who use and co-develop the Australian Community Climate Earth System Model (ACCESS) for their research.

The focus is on ACCESS-CM and ACCESS-ESM models as well as anything related to paleoclimate or fully coupled climate modelling.

Initially the aims of this group are to

  • facilitate communication within the community
  • co-develop ACCESS Earth System models
  • exchange information though regular meetings
  • provide information about training
  • facilitate collaboration on shared projects, experiments and datasets
  • act as a conduit between the community and the ACCESS-NRI Scientific Advisory Committee and ACCESS-NRI regarding development priority areas and resourcing
