Community Earth Systems Model Link
The Community Earth System Model (CESM) is a fully-coupled, global climate model that provides state-of-the-art computer simulations of the Earth's past, present, and future climate states.
CESM is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Administration of the CESM is maintained by the Climate and Global Dynamics Division (CGD) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
Taken from CESM website:
Changes in climate, whether anthropogenic or natural, involve a complex interplay of physical, chemical, and biological processes of the atmosphere, ocean, and land surface. As climate system research seeks to explain the behavior of climate time scales of years to millennia, the focus necessarily turns to the interactions among the physical, chemical, and biogeochemical...

NASA Model ELast Updated on 2011-08-09 00:00:00
Link to Model E Website
The latest incarnation of the GISS series of coupled atmosphere-ocean models is now available. Called ModelE, it is a complete rewrite of Model II' physics, combined with greater flexibility and more options. These include better representations of the stratosphere, tracer components and various ocean models.
The frozen version used for IPCC AR4 simulations (see below) and the controls for model description papers is denoted as ModelE1 (internal version number 3.0, dated Feb. 1, 2004). This code can be freely downloaded (as a 1.2 MB gzip-ed tar file) frommodelE1.tar.gz. There are nightly snapshots of the current code repository available also, but users should be aware that these snapshots are presented 'as is' and are not neccessarily suitable for publication-quality experiments. The frozen AR5 version will be posted... More »
