<p>This special issue on climate modeling presents a snapshot of some of the research scientists are conducting to improve our climate modeling capabilities. We present articles on promising atmospheric and ocean models, meshing issues for geophysical applications, implementation on distributed computer architectures, atmospheric-chemistry models, and the testing and evaluation of models. These articles, taken together, provide a good indication of the problems facing climate modelers today and some of the solutions they are pursuing.</p>
