About ICES

ICES is a foundation devoted to addressing global challenges and the way in which eScience, e-Infrastructures, computational and computer science can help solving these issues. The mission of ICES is to integrate the vast pools of knowledge contained within today’s multitude of scientific and socio-economic specializations and to develop next generation ‘holistic’ modeling, simulation and visualizations that accurately depict the medium and long term future direction of planet Earth.

ICES is a project for the common good that will provide enhanced decision support and improved scientific underpinnings to our current and future policy makers, especially with respect to the effects of climate change, extreme weather, geoengineering, resource depletion, fresh water availability, food security, public health & safety, and hazard reduction and mitigation.
