ESM as a puzzle: making CliMA accessible piece by piece

by Alexandre A. Renchon, Katherine Deck, Renato Braghiere: In the realm of scientific advancement, enhancing Earth System Models (ESMs) stands out as a paramount objective. Presently, however, these models remain enigmatic enclaves for many researchers, akin to inscrutable black boxes. The labyrinthine nature of ESMs, coupled with their high computational demands, usage of esoteric programming languages, and the absence of lucid documentation and user interfaces, contribute to this opacity. To surmount these obstacles, CliMA is creating a new era of accessible ESM features for the global scientific community: Modernized Programming: Departing from convention, CliMA adopts a contemporary programming language, Julia.…
