The National Unified Operational Prediction Capability (NUOPC) aims to fundamentally advance the weather prediction modeling systems used by the National Weather Service, Air Force and Navy meteorologists, mission planners, and decision makers. Collaborators are developing a NUOPC Layer that supplements ESMF with usage and content conventions in order to achieve greater interoperability among components of weather prediction codes.
NUOPC Layer design documents and user documentation are located on NUOPC CoG Site. The NUOPC Layer is still a work in progress.
NUOPC plans are captured in several documents:
The "Level of adoption of the NUOPC Layer in the participating codes" document captures how the various aspects of the NUOPC Layer are being adopted over the reporting periods. (v. 01/2012) (Download MS Word Document)
The emerging NUOPC Layer is documented under Conventions/NUOPC Layer.
