We will present the results of our case study on the U.K. Met Office's climate model, FAMOUS/HadCM3, that
was carried out in support of Climate Prediction net's Millennium Experiment. This experience has shown us the
some of the challenges that large-scale Earth System simulations continue to pose for computer scientists,
including those of performance and energy consumption.
