ESMF reduces technical barriers to sharing codes, and encourages regular interagency dialogue through its processes and management. It has fostered an unprecedented level of interaction among modelers from NASA, DoD, NOAA, other agencies and centers, and universities. These collaborations are transcending traditional geoscience domains and merge hydrology, space weather, climate, and weather prediction projects.
