DYAMOND – an initiative which pushes the limits

By co-organising and supporting the DYAMOND initiative, ESiWACE pushes the limits of climate and weather models all over the world and teaches how to work, provide and analyse this large amount of data. (01.12. 2022)

EC-Earth4: Developing a Next Generation Earth System Model

What is the common denominator of EC-Earth's transition to OpenIFS, an improved coupling workflow, reduction of computational bottlenecks and high resolution demonstrator configurations? They all have been achieved with major support from the ESiWACE projects. (08.12.2021)

Efficiently learning how to use the OASIS coupler

A Short Private Online Course (SPOC) with a mixture of theory, videos, quizzes and hands-on makes it easier to learn and to teach OASIS. In the future, anyone wanting to work with OASIS can follow the SPOC at any time and get started with their coupled model immediately. (09.11.2021)
