10 million model years!
Thu, 22 Dec 2005

Congratulations and thanks to all our participants who have helped us to simulate 10 million years of weather & climate! The first results from the 5 phase experiment can now be found at the link below:

cpdn at Science Museum
Fri, 27 Jan 2006

If anyone is in London on the first of February, they might be interested in seeing Nick and Carl talking about climate prediction at the Science Museum's Dana Centre.

BBC experiment running for 1 week
Tue, 21 Feb 2006

The BBC Climate Change Experiment has been running for one week. Huge thanks to the over 80,000 new participants for taking part! Don't worry if you are one of the people running quite slowly. Modelling the first few years is extremely useful for us, so do keep going. Many thanks also to all the people who are being so helpful on the message boards.

Welcome to participants in the BBC Climate Change Experiment!
Wed, 15 Feb 2006

over 20,000 people in 97 countries have already signed up to take part in this experiment!

BBC Climate Change Experiment launched
Tue, 14 Feb 2006

Climateprediction.net, a project involving a group of universities and academic institutions led by Oxford University, in partnership with the BBC, today launches its new climate change experiment. This investigates the uncertainty in the climate of 1920-2080, with a view to understanding the risk of faster or slower future climate change than the current best estimate. Participants in the U.K. will be able to watch a series of documentaries, starting with 'Meltdown' at 2100 on Monday, 20th Feb. on BBC4, in which Myles Allen describes the new experiment. The first results of the experiment will be shown in a documentary in about May. Thanks to the hard work of the climateprediction.net team, people joining the project having seen the BBC publicity will find a much more user friendly download package, graphics, etc. Welcome to new participants and ongoing thanks to existing ones - if you are already running BOINC, attach to bbc.cpdn.org rather than downloading the new client.

Another Advanced Modelling Experiment
Fri, 10 Mar 2006

Pardeep Pall, a DPhil student at Oxford University, and Tolu Aina of climateprediction.net have put together a higher-resolution atmospheric model for a seasonal attribution project (the UK 2000 floods). This may be of interest to current or prospective participants who have a 'higher spec' machine, as it requires 1GB of RAM! The experiment itself is of shorter length (3 weeks run-time typically); and you get to see the lovely higher-resolution graphics courtesy of Tolu. If you have just started a sulphur-cycle experiment you may want to suspend and attach to Pardeep's project for awhile instead. More information/website in the link below.

Also note that soon the BBC coupled-model experiment (currently hosted at http://bbc.cpdn.org) will be available as a 'normal' workunit here at the main cp.net site. So most likely by the time you finish your current slab or sulphur run, it will be automatically downloaded as your next workunit. And again we'd like to take this opportunity to thank the many volunteer moderators and 'helpers' for the main and BBC experiment boards!

Error With File On Coupled Model Experiment
Sun, 16 Apr 2006

Unfortunately there was a major error in a file used on the recent coupled model experiment (the BBC experiment as well as those running 'hadcm3l' on the regular CPDN/BOINC site. A full explanation is in the link below; but basically the runs are going to be reset automatically so participants will get new, corrected models to download. We apologize for the inconvenience.
