Weather@home is a group of regional climate modeling experiments within climateprediction.net, a volunteer computing and climate modeling project based at the University of Oxford in the Environmental Change Institute, the Oxford e-Research Centre and Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics.
With climateprediction.net, scientists are able to design experiments that answer questions that otherwise could not be answered without large climate model ensembles. However, most extreme weather events take place on a much smaller scale that the global models can’t show. That’s where the weather@home project comes in.
Weather@home runs regional climate models to answer the question: how does climate change affect our weather.
Weather@home is a family of regional climate models for a growing number of regions around the world. With weather@home scientists can investigate how the odds of extreme weather events change due to man-made climate change and natural climate variability.
