|Long Name||Energy Exascale Earth System Model|
The Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM) Project is an ongoing, state-of-the-science Earth system modeling, simulation, and prediction project, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER), that optimizes the use of DOE laboratory resources to meet the science needs of the nation and the mission needs of DOE. A major motivation for the E3SM project is the coming paradigm shift in computing architectures and their related programming models as capability moves into the exascale era.
The E3SM model simulates the fully coupled climate system at high-resolution (15-25km) and will include coupling with energy systems, it has a unique capability for variable resolution modeling using unstructured grids in all its earth system component models.
