Infrastructure for Next Generation Earth System Modeling Using ESMF/NUOPC
DescriptionThe Community Mediator for Earth Prediction Systems (CMEPS) is an extensible ESMF/NUOPC-compliant coupler component capable of coupling atmosphere, ocean, sea ice, land, wave, river and glacier models. CMEPS provides the coupling infrastructure for the Community Earth System Model (CESM), the NOAA Unified Forcast System (UFS), the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM), the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) Earth System Model (CMCC-CM3) and the Consortium for Ocean-Sea Ice Modelling in Australia. CMEPS provides many new capabilities for Earth System Science, including permitting an arbitrary number of ice sheets (including Greenland and Antarctica) to run simultaneously. As a companion to CMEPS, a set of next generation "data components" called the Community Data Models for Earth Prediction Systems (CDEPS) have also been developed. CDEPS consists of a set of ESMF/NUOPC-compliant components capable of injecting forcings, such as reanalysis products, directly into a NUOPC-based coupled system. Forcing data can be at different resolutions as well as temporal frequencies from the model simulation. CDEPS can carry out various spatial and time interpolations at run time, thereby permitting a wide range of forcing datasets. In this talk a summary of new science and performance capabilities that CMEPS and CDEPS enable.
