The Azimuth Project
Program for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison

Idea

The Program for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison or PCMDI is an organization that develops tools for diagnosing and comparing general circulation models (GCMs) that simulate the global climate.

The PCMDI was established in 1989 at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), located in the San Francisco Bay area, in California. The staff includes research scientists, computer scientists, and diverse support personnel. They are primarily funded by the Regional and Global Climate Modeling (RGCM) Program and the Atmospheric System Research (ASR) Program of the Climate and Environmental Sciences Division of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science, Biological and Environmental Research (BER) program.
