     1== Introduction to UKESM1 
     3[[PageOutline(1-3,Page Contents)]] 
     7UKESM1 is the first release of the UK Earth System Model. Built as a joint venture by the Met Office Hadley Centre and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), UKESM1 consists of the HadGEM3 coupled physical climate model plus additional components that model key biogeochemical, chemistry, aerosol and vegetation processes.   
     9More information about the contents and development of UKESM1 is available at; in particular, the release and support of UKESM1 is described [ here] and [ here]. 
     11== Accessing and running UKESM1 
     13=== Background and prerequisites 
     15The model makes use of several scientific components, including the [ Unified Model] (UM) weather and climate modeling application.  See [wiki:UM here] for more on the UM. 
     17UKESM1 is distributed and run as a [ Rose] suite; Rose is a framework for developing and running meteorological applications.  Some details about  Rose are available [wiki:RoseCylc here]. 
     19The UKESM1 suite incorporates switches to choose the machine on which it is run.  Available resources include [ Archer], the UKRI platform, and [ MONSooN], the Met Office / NERC collaborative platform.  Both are accessible from the [wiki:PumaService PUMA service].  See [wiki:Archer here] for more on Archer, and [wiki:MonsoonIntro here] for more about MONSooN (including how to get registered on these machines). 
     21The UKESM1 suites are available from the [ Met Office Science Repository Service] (MOSRS).  You must be registered to access this service; please [ contact us] to get an account. 
     23=== UKESM1 release note 
     25Detailed release notes for the first release of UKESM, which describe how to access the suite, options for running the model (including selecting the target machine) and further configuration of the suite    are available [here].  Note that this document contains links to the MOSRS, which is only accessible to registered users (see [#Backgroundandprerequisites above]).
