Metta.org.uk is participating in the Worlds largest Climate Change experiment ever undertaken.

We are using spare capacity of office and home computers. The effort in accurately predicting global climate change takes a lot of computing and the public are being asked to help. It costs nothing to take part, the programme works in the background while your computer is on.

The experiment uses a huge number of possible variables which run a model of climatic changes from 1920 right through to 2080. As the experiment runs you can view your "model" as it works through the changes in climate over time as an image of the world rotating. Its basically using your computers number crunching ability while you do whatever you usually do on your computer...

You can join in very simply by using your computers "spare capacity". The project will run for some time so a 3-4 months commitment is required, however, it will run in the background so if you loose interest or forget about it it will continue working every time your computer is switched on.

What you need: (Most computers that are less than 5 years old will work)
A PC running Windows 2000, XP, Vista or Linux.
A broadband connection to the Internet.
0.6GB (600 megabytes) of free space on your hard disk drive.
A processor at least as powerful as a 1.6GHz and 384mb of RAM or more (memory)

You can see how much memory and what processor you have by right-clicking on My Computer.
To see how much hard drive space you have open Windows Explorer or My Computer (on the desktop), highlight the hard drive (often labelled C:) and selecting 'Properties'

 

As of 12 January 2007 the BBC climate change experiment has closed to new users, however, if you are still interested in participating please visit climateprediction.net
