EdGCM, or the Educational Global Climate Model, is a suite of software that allows users to run a fully functional 3D global climate model (GCM) on laptops or desktop computers. {read a general description of the software}

At its core, EdGCM uses a Global Climate Model (GCM) developed at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, which has been used by researchers to study climates of the past, present and future. EdGCM makes it possible for people to use the GCM without requiring programming skills or supercomputers.

More detailed descriptions of major components of the software can be found here along with images of the graphical user interface:

EdGCM comes with a complete set of manuals.
