CliMA 0.1: A first milestone in the next generation of climate models

At CliMA, we are building an Earth System Model (ESM) that harnesses more data than ever before to produce accurate and precise climate predictions. Today, the release of CliMA 0.1 brings us one step closer toward achieving our goals. CliMA v0.1.0 consists of code for large eddy simulations (LES) of turbulent flows in atmosphere and oceans and for dynamical cores of general circulation models (GCM) for the ocean and atmosphere. All CliMA code is written in Julia, a dynamic, high-level programming language for high-performance scientific computing. Caltech Postdoctoral Scholars Akshay Sridhar and Zhaoyi Shen, together with others, are in the…
