DOE Announces $70 Million for Earth System Model

Seven projects researching the development of earth model simulation program.

 The Department of Energy announced that they have awarded seven projects $70 million in funding to accelerate the development of the Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM). The E3SM is a complex computer program is intended to accurately simulate the earth’s climate to help scientists and mathematicians more closely understand and predict the effects of climate change.

“Being able to understand and predict what is happening in a system as complex as planet Earth is crucial to finding solutions to climate change,” said Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm. “The projects announced today will give university and National Lab researchers deep insight into our oceans, our air, and our climate and into how emissions are impacting the world around us right now and in the future.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For insight for Secretary Granholm as the Energy Department pursues information on climate change.
  • For wisdom for U.S. scientists and researchers as they assess and build the model to estimate climate and atmospheric conditions.
