Hi,

I thought you might like to see some of the changes I've been making to our website, to make the content more up-to-date and useful for participants.

I'm also always keen to hear any comments or feedback you might have about the site.

If there's content you'd like to see, please let me know.

First off, what do you think of the new Climate Science pages?

This includes a Climate Science Glossary of terms we use on the website.

Are any of these explanations confusing? Are there other words or phrases you'd like us to add?

Many thanks for your feedback,

Keep crunching!

Cheers,
Hannah

Very good! I would love more references though. Not just the climate-science-resources page, but footnotes after sentences/paragraphs.

Hi, Thanks Tullus and Niall, those are all really helpful comments.

I'll have a think about how to implement them and get back to you!

Best wishes,
Hannah

Open access publications

Hi, I've just been going through our publications page on the website, noting which are Open Access:
http://www.climateprediction.net/publications/

Unfortunately, Nature, one of the big journals, is not open access, so out papers published there won't be accessible...

I hope this will be useful for those of you wanting to read more about the research outputs from the project.

If I missed any, please let me know!

Many thanks,
Hannah

Hey Hannah!

Maybe you can answer what these new kind of models called "UK Met Office HadCM3 short" are?

Some part of Geoengineering or what?

New batch of about 20000 workunits was just released!

Cheers
Melvyn

Hi - you can read a bit more about the models used in our experiments on the website here:
http://www.climateprediction.net/climate-science/models-used/#HadCM3S

But yes, it's being used for the solar radiation geoengineering experiment.

(the "s" doesn't actually stand for "short", it's a relatively arbitrary letter to note that this model is a modified version of HadCM3)

Cheers,
Hannah

And now I've added a page for the next weather@home regional project, coming soon: Weather@home East Asia: Causes of 2013 Heatwave, where we'll be working with colleagues in Korea looking at extreme weather events in China, Korea and Japan.

Don't forget you can find out the latest goings on with climateprediction.net on Twitter and Facebook - it would great to see more volunteers from the forums here join us on social media!

Cheers,
Hannah
