The MAP Program periodically sponsors “projects” that
include integration across models, super-computing, organizations,
and NASA and non-NASA systems infrastructure. In both 2005
and 2006 the MAP Program participated in assessing how the
GEOS-5 model performed for hurricane tracking. In addition,
in 2006 the MAP '06 Project participated in testing an interface
between the GEOS-5 global model and the WRF regional model,and provided that information to the NAMMA field experiment.
