The CSDMS Modeling Tool (CMT) allows you to run and couple CSDMS model components on the CSDMS supercomputer in a user-friendly software environment. Components in the CMT are based on models, originally submitted to the CSDMS model repository, and now adapted to communicate with other models. The CMT tool is the environment in which you can link these components together to run new simulations. The CMT software runs on your own computer; but it communicates with the CSDMS HPCC, to perform the simulations. Thus, the CMT also offers you a relatively easy way of using the CSDMS supercomputer for model experiments.
The CSDMS Modeling Tool is your way of communicating with the CSDMS supercomputer. Scripts and commands constantly go back and forth between the CMT on your computer and the HPCC. Since the HPCC needs secure access, you will need to go through three steps things before you can start using the CMT:
If you have these requirements set up, you can download and use the CMT.

We did not start from scratch: we at CSDMS are developing a modified version of the Ccaffeine GUI. This GUI is the front-end for the assembly of applications using CCA components and we gratefully acknowledge their support.
