Link of the Week: Results Posted for BBC Climate Experiment

In 2006, more than 250,000 members of the global public worldwide volunteered spare processing power from their personal computers to participate in the largest yet climate modeling experiment. A team from the University of Oxford compiled the data to predict the Earth's climate through the year 2080. The results are now posted on the BBC's Web site.

The BBC teamed up with Climateprediction.net to conduct the experiment. The Climateprediction.net consortium is led by the University of Oxford, and includes The Met Office, The University of California - Berkeley, The London School of Economics, The Open University, The University of Reading and The Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. This experiment was funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council, with additional support from Microsoft Corporation.
