EdGCM software download logisticsLast Updated on 2010-08-17 00:00:00 Hi everyone,
I think Mark and I may have inadvertently caused some confusion about how to get the EdGCM software and then use your license key, so I'd like to try to clarify things.
- The EdGCM software installer is available for download from the EdGCM web site (http://edgcm.columbia.edu/download-edgcm/). To streamline the process a little, here are the direct links to the downloads, which we normally distribute only via email. (If you decide to have your students download the software for themselves, please send them to the web site rather than giving them the direct links below - we have no other way at present of tracking downloads.) You MUST cut and paste the URL that's shown into your browser's address bar, and then delete the space before 'exe' or 'dmg' before you hit the return key to start the download. Sorry about that, but email spam filters tend to... More »
EdGCM: Examples of Diagnostic VariablesLast Updated on 2010-08-10 00:00:00
Sample Diagnostic Variables Available for Use with EdGCM
EdGCM offers the ability to view hundreds of diagnostic variables produced by the Global Climate Model. Below is a list of typical variables that can be used in lab exercises with most students. (Unless otherwise noted, all variables listed are shown in the default variables list.)
Map Variables: Values are represented in a latitude x longitude grid at the Earth’s surface.
Map variables include:
Surface Air Temperature
Snow Depth ... More »
