ESMF is changing how models are structured and developed

ESMF organizes models into collections of components with standardized interfaces, arranged in hierarchical trees. Modelers can utilize ESMF toolkits for common tasks, and can draw from a pool of modeling components already in the community. The result is increased code-sharing and collaboration across organizations, faster knowledge transfer and technical adaptation, and cost savings through code reuse.
