9 SWMLAC ICT Masterclass January How will the way you collaborate with your users and colleagues change? The results are the first from climateprediction.net, a project that harnesses the world's desktop computers to predict climate change. More than 90,000 people have downloaded software that uses the spare capacity of their computers to run global climate simulations.
