Java Climate Model
Welcome to JCM5
Updated 28th October 2008
This version is put online for testing, please check soon for updates
The model should work but the documentation is incomplete / not updated
Please give feedback to Ben Matthews
Launch JCM5 using Java Web Start...
Just click on one of the images below to load and start JCM5
Each points to the same model, with a different initial setup.
The basic case recalls your previous setup
Webstart will cache JCM5 locally, so you can use it offline, but should automatically check for updates if you are online.
...Or save JCM jar files
You can instead run JCM5 offline by saving the following files to your disk:
The optional jars below add features, they should be in the same directory as JCM5.jar
From Windows or Mac, just click on JCM5.jar to run the model.
In Linux, use the command java -jar JCM5.jar (from the directory containing these files)
In this case, there is no check for updates, so please check this page again soon.
It doesn't work? - see problems with starting JCM5
To experiment with changing JCM5 source code, it is recommended to install Netbeans5.5 together with JDK6,
(free download from java.sun.com)
Then ask me (mail as above) about the current project setup - you will need some extra small files
