ESRL Global Systems Division

Software

In pursuing its mission, GSD develops software that may be of use to others engaged in high-technology weather research and system development. From time to time, software will be made available for downloading through this page.

In December 2000, GSD adapted an Open-Source Software License, in support of the Federal Government's efforts to encourage this new way developing and sharing software. See also Software Distribution Policy.

GSD has developed several applications in the Java computer language. Source code for some of these is available on our Java page.

The Scalable Modeling System (SMS) is a high level software tool set developed to simplify the parallelization of atmospheric, oceanic, hydrological, and climate codes. It is currently available as an experimental public domain software release from the SMS Software Page.
