I know that many of you plan to attend the upcoming AGU meeting.
Members and staff of the Federation have had discussions with Cecelia
Deluca's group at UCAR on the Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF).  A
introductory-level workshop on the ESMF is being offered during the AGU
meeting.  Please consider attending the workshop if you are interested
in Earth system modeling.

> This hands-on tutorial is an entry-level introduction to the
> Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF), a software package for
> building modular, high performance modeling and data assimilation
> applications. The ESMF consists of an infrastructure of data
> structures and utilities for building modeling components, and
> a superstructure that includes regridding tools and drivers for
> assembling modeling components into applications. The ESMF
> promotes an organized, hierarchical software architecture that
> makes complex applications easier to maintain and extend, and
> allows individual components to be exchanged and used in multiple
> contexts. The framework is being adopted by many modeling efforts
> in the Earth sciences, and is the technical foundation for the NASA
> Modeling Analysis and Prediction Program for Climate Variability
> and Change and the DoD Battlespace Environments Institute.
> For more information on ESMF, see the ESMF website at:
> http://www.esmf.ucar.edu
> The objectives of this half-day course are:
> * to give an overview of the background, goals, and scope of the
>   ESMF project;
> * to review the status of the ESMF software implementation,
>   capabilities, and application adoption activities;
> * to outline the design principles underlying the ESMF software;
> * to describe the major classes and functions of ESMF;
> * to describe how to prepare a code for using ESMF, and how to
>   incorporate ESMF;
> * to identify ESMF resources available to users such as documentation
>   and support staff.
