PRECIS: a regional climate modelling system

PRECIS is a regional climate modelling system developed at the Met Office Hadley Centre with the intention of allowing users in developing countries to easily produce detailed climate projections for any chosen region of the world. PRECIS is designed to run a Linux PC so does not require extensive IT infrastructure.

The latest version of PRECIS (PRECIS 2.0) was released in 2016.
