Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF)
Entry ID: ESMF

Summary
Abstract: The Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF) collaboration, which consists of
Earth scientists and computational experts from major U.S. Earth modeling
centers, is developing a robust, flexible set of software tools to enhance ease
of use, performance portability, interoperability, and reuse in climate,
numerical weather prediction, and data assimilation applications. The ESMF
will allow diverse scientific groups to leverage common software to solve
routine computational problems such as efficient data communication, model
component coupling and sequencing, time management, and parameter
specification. In an open dialogue with the broader community, our
collaboration will also develop a software interface specification so that
groups working at different institutions and in different disciplines can
generate interoperable software components. "http://www.earthsystemmodeling.org/"

The ESMF software is currently supported on the following platforms:
IBM AIX (32 and 64 bit addressing)
SGI IRIX (64 bit addressing)
COMPAQ Tru64 Unix

If the platform you are interested in building the ESMF on is not listed above,
please contact us. We can offer limited support for Sun Solaris and HPC, a
variety of Linux compilers, the Apple OS, and others. Users have the option of
either downloading pre-linked shared object files specific to a platform or
downloading the full ESMF source and compiling the framework themselves. System
requirements for getting and building the ESMF software include:

- a C++ compiler
- a Fortran90 compiler
- a MPI implementation compatible with these compilers
- GNU make and GNU zip
- latex, latex2html, and dvipdf are needed to build the ESMF documentation
