Welcome to the ICCP Climate Data website

Introduction

Climate Data is a data portal that serves climate model simulations conducted as part of the research activities at the IBS Center for Climate Physics. We also make the codes of some of our model simulations available. If you are planning to use those, we recommend contacting the authors of the original research papers for further details and advice. For more information on our center and our research project please visit our website.
