Pretty much just like the subject says. The BBC is helping a group of scientists at Oxford compile climate change information using BOINC software, which runs in the background on your home computer.

We're organising the world's largest ever climate experiment, and we need your help.

We need thousands of people to help
Trying to predict climate change is hard. There are lots of factors involved – air temperature, sea temperature and cloud cover all play a part – as do dozens of other variables. Therefore, there are a huge number of calculations involved.

One solution is for scientists to use the largest supercomputer they can find. But even the biggest supercomputers are only so good.

We think you can do better.

Using a technique known as distributed computing, we’re hoping to harness the power of thousands of PCs around the world. If 10,000 people sign up, we’ll be faster than the world’s biggest computer. And we’re hoping to be even better than that.
