Community Climate System Model (CCSM)

The Community Climate System Model (CCSM) is a coupled climate model for simulating the climate system of the earth. Composed of four separate models simultaneously simulating the atmosphere of the earth, ocean, land surface and sea-ice, and one central coupler component, the CCSM allows researchers to conduct fundamental research into the past, present and future climate states of the earth.

CCSM version 3.0 was released to the public in June 2004.
