The project is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) via the research programme COAPEC (Coupled Ocean Atmosphere Processes and European Climate), with additional funding through the Department of Trade and Industry’s e-Science core programme and the European Union’s ENSEMBLES and MILLENNIUM projects.

Corporate sponsors

Microsoft has provided financial support for the further development of client software and grid services for scientist access to the dataset.

Associated partners

We are very grateful to the following science institutions and organisations which have provided support: the UK MetOffice and its Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research, the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts and the Coupled Ocean Atmosphere Processes and European Climate research programme (COAPEC). The project relies on software developed by the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) based at the University of California, Berkeley.
