Support the CCSM Plan
Provide the infrastructure on which to build CCSM and support and facilitate achievement of the science goals.
- Support concurrent development by multiple investigators at multiple institutions in a controlled environment.
- Facilitate transfer of development by the research community to the core system at NCAR, and increase usability of core system by the research community.
- Separate, at an appropriate level, scientific and computational aspects of the software to allow systematic, balanced decision making on scientific and computational issues.
