<p>The rapid increase in the speed and capacity of commonly available PCs is providing an opportunity to use distributed computing to tackle major modeling tasks such as climate simulation. Our climateprediction.com project is developing the software necessary to carry out such a project in the public domain.1 In this article, we describe the development of the demonstration release software, along with the computational challenges such as data mining, visualization, and distributed database management that the project will address in the future.</p>
