Service & Support
M&D provides services and support for the scientific Earth System research community as well as for the public interested in climate issues, and for decision makers.
M&D is engaged in several European and national projects related to Earth System science.
The main emphasis is on supporting the Earth System modelling community as well as on services for data access, and processing and visualization.
Earth System modelling is supported through the development and maintenance of a modelling infrastructure that comprises source code management, compilation, execution, and monitoring of numerical Earth System models.
The international community, represented by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), has decided to regularly report on the state of the art of research related to climate change issues. M&D supports this effort through direct participation in the execution of IPCC (and other) numerical simulations, and through the collection and distribution of data resulting from these experiments.
