C2SM provides support to its community for activities related to climate modeling, climate data and scientific visualization in the areas of research, education, and outreach.
In particular, C2SM maintains and refines several families of climate system models operating at the regional and global scales to facilitate their exploitation. Read more on the activities related to global climate modeling and regional climate modeling.
Our scientific visualization activities help community members to visualize their latest scientific findings, providing a look into the details and complexities of the climate and weather phenomena simulated by climate models, and also in climate data. C2SM offers support in the areas of scientific visualization and also web programming.
The climate data related activities focused on data acquisition, management and dissemination. For example C2SM collects and documents the datasets most commonly used in the community and develops analysis and data management tools. C2SM also contributes to the development of climate change scenarios focusing on Switzerland.
Helpful information for climate scientists, such as tools, manuals and scripts on data analysis and information on climate models are stored on the C2SM wiki.
