ACCESS

Overview

The Australian Community Climate and Earth-System Simulator (ACCESS) is a coupled climate and earth system simulator to be developed as a joint initiative of the Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO in cooperation with the university community in Australia.

There are multiple configurations of ACCESS

Our goal is to assist researchers in using ACCESS coupled model as provided on the computing cluster at NCI. If you have any corrections, comments or contributions, please feel free to email us on cws_help@nf.nci.org.au so that we can continue to update and upgrade the guides over time.
