The Energy and Climate mission provides software that covers a variety of applications including simulation, modeling, computation, modeling, and more.

Commercial software can be licensed directly from Sandia unless otherwise noted. If you are interested in distributing software, please visit the Open Source Software page.


  • Albany is the development of equations sets for specific application areas
  • Trillinos is an object-oriented software framework for the solution of large-scale, complex multi-physics engineering and scientific problems
  • Dakota is helping analysts & decision-makers understand outcomes of predictive simulations
  • FELIX (Finite Element for Land Ice eXperiments) is the dynamical core for ice sheet simulations
  • “PISCEES” Predicting Ice Sheet Climate & Evolution at Extreme Scales
  • WecSim
  • CANARY is event detection software for water distribution networks

Modeling and Simulation

  • Community Earth System Model (CESM) is a community, global climate model that provides computer simulations of the Earth’s past, present, and future climate states.
