We are pleased to announce the creation of the Climate Code Foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit organisation founded by David Jones, Nick Barnes, and Philippa Davey to promote public understanding of climate science. The Foundation will continue work on the Clear Climate Code project, and also related activities, encouraging climate scientists to improve and publish their software.
The Foundation intends to work with climate scientists, funding bodies, national and international organisations, and science publishers. We hope to establish climate science in the forefront of science software quality and transparency.
Members of the Foundation are attending the Surface Temperatures workshop at the UK Met Office in September 2010, to promote better and more open software practices within that project.
If you support the Foundation’s goals, there are many ways to contribute to its work.
