GMAO GEOS-5

The Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) has delivered the next-generation global atmospheric model, GEOS-5, for MAP. GEOS-5 is a major element of NASA's “Earth System Model” - a model where the components may be interchanged or augmented via the Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF). Thus, the GEOS-5 modeling system represents a new modeling approach that can capitalize on different agency and community investments. The GEOS-5 system will be available from a software repository that is part of the MAP Modeling Environment (MAP-ME). MAP-ME is maintained by GSFC's Software Integration and Visualization Office (SIVO). Community investigators may work with GEOS-5 independently or in collaboration with scientists at the GMAO. In either case, by working through the MAP-ME, they will have access to technical support from SIVO.

Investigators whose work requires in-depth scientific understanding of the GEOS-5 system are encouraged to establish collaborations with GMAO scientists. GMAO collaborators will be able to work on the main line of development at the Software Repository and have access to GMAO's products as part of the “GMAO science team.” Scientists who would like to participate in direct collaborations should approach the GMAO point of contact in their area.

Investigators who wish to use GEOS-5 within their own computing environments and/or download local versions to make modifications without direct collaboration with the core developers within the GMAO can still receive technical support from SIVO and should contact a SIVO representative to discuss plans for research and usage of the models.

GEOS-5 is now available to the general public under a NASA Open Source Agreement.
