A tool used by scientists to create climate models is about to become easier to use and available to a much wider audience.

A new Web-enhanced version of the most commonly used climate modeling system will allow many more scientists -- and even curious students -- to test theories about the planet's climate.

Matt Huber, an assistant professor of earth and atmospheric sciences at Purdue Univeristy , says the Community Climate System Model is already used by thousands of scientists, and the results from their models often make headlines around the world.
