Welcome to the ACCESS community!

The CoE for Climate Systems Science's Computational Modelling Systems team provides support with ACCESS models to the Australian university community. Email climate_help@nf.nci.org.au to get in touch with us.

Model runs are configured on the server 'accessdev.nci.org.au', which you can access using your NCI account. This system is behind a firewall, to log on from your local workstation you will need a static IP address (talk to your local IT support to arrange this). Send this address to climate_help@nf.nci.org.au to be allowed through the firewall. Note that the university community is only licensed to run the model on NCI computers.

Documentation for using the ACCESS model is available at the CMS Wiki: http://climate-cms.unsw.wikispaces.net. An account is not necessary to view the wiki, if you do apply for an account please let us know who it's for, either by adding a note to the account creation form or emailing the helpdesk.

The UK Met Office's Unified Model is the atmospheric component of ACCESS. The Met Office has a wiki at http://collab.metoffice.gov.uk, you can also join their mailing list by emailing UM_collaboration@metoffice.gov.uk.

NCI will add your account to the ACCESS group so that you can start using the model. Once this has been done follow the instructions at http://climate-cms.unsw.wikispaces.net/UM+Environment to get started.
