Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis

The Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis (CCCma), a section of the Climate Research Division, develops and applies computer models of the climate system to simulate global and Canadian climate, and to predict changes on seasonal to centennial timescales. Analysis of these simulations, together with observations, is used to provide science-based quantitative information to inform climate change adaptation and mitigation in Canada and internationally, and to improve our understanding of the climate system. Notably, CCCma develops the modelling system used to produce seasonal forecasts operationally by Environment and Climate Change Canada, and carries out climate model experiments coordinated by the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) in support of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
