www.esmf.ucar.edu Motivation for ESMF In climate research and NWP... increased emphasis on detailed representation of individual physical processes; requires many teams of specialists to contribute components to an overall modeling system In computing technology... increase in hardware and software complexity in high-performance computing, shift toward the use of scalable computing architectures In software … development of frameworks, such as the GFDL Flexible Modeling System (FMS) and Goddard Earth Modeling System (GEMS) that encourage software reuse and interoperability The ESMF is a focused community effort to tame the complexity of models and the computing environment. It leverages, unifies and extends existing software frameworks, creating new opportunities for scientific contribution and collaboration.
www.esmf.ucar.edu ESMF Project Description GOALS: To increase software reuse, interoperability, ease of use and performance portability in climate, weather, and data assimilation applications PRODUCTS: Core framework: Software for coupling geophysical components and utilities for building components Applications: Deployment of the ESMF in 15 of the nation’s leading climate and weather models, assembly of 8 new science-motivated applications METRICS: RESOURCES and TIMELINE: $9.8M over 3 years, starting February 2002 ReuseInteroperabilityEase of AdoptionPerformance 15 applications use ESMF component coupling services and 3+ utilities 8 new applications comprised of never- before coupled components 2 codes adopt ESMF with < 2% lines of code changed, or within 120 FTE-hours No more than 10% overhead in time to solution, no degradation in scaling
