NICEST2 project preparation

Open Canvas

The Open Canvas for NICEST2 has been published and we welcome your feedback.

Project Plan

The first draft of the NICEST2 Project Plan has been recently published. It will be regularly updated before the start of the project (June 2020).

NICEST2 expected benefits

Strengthen the Nordic position within climate modeling by leveraging, reinforcing and complementing ongoing initiatives to enable a future joint Nordic Climate Model Intercomparison Project and Nordic Climate-as-a-service.

  • Enhance the performance and optimize and homogenize workflows used, so climate models (like EC-EARTH and NorESM) can be run in an efficient way on future computing resources (like EuroHPC).
  • Widen the usage and expertise on evaluating Earth System Models and develop new diagnostic modules for the Nordic region within the ESMValTool
  • Create a roadmap for FAIRification of Nordic climate model data
