ENES was launched in 2001. Upon the establishment of the network and in the following years, several institutions including university departments, research centres, meteorological services, computer centres, and industrial partners, agreed to work together and cooperate (see Memorandum of Understanding) to discuss strategies to accelerate progress in climate and Earth system modelling and understanding. It is intended to be a portal for the climate modelling...

The objective of the CMIP is to better understand past, present and future climate changes arising from natural, unforced variability or in response to changes in radiative forcing in a multi-model context. This understanding includes assessments of model performance during the historical period and quantifications of the causes of the spread in future projections. Idealized experiments are also used to increase understanding of the model...
