WarmWorld is a project submitted to BMBF. The project has three overaching goals:

Goal 1: An ICON based coupled model configuraiton capable of being run, with an acceptable simulation quality, on km-scale (2.5km global grids or finer), with a throughput of >0.5 simulated years per day at the start of Phase 2 (planned for 2026).

Goal 2: A first release of ICON-consolidated: an open source version of the fully coupled (land, ocean, atmosphere) ICON system refactored to enable its scalable development.

Goal 3: An integrated workflow that exposes the information content of the ICON modelling system alongside IFS-based solutions and observational data in ways that leverage the intuition of users and supports innovation.
