- Can I address the NSF required broader impacts by using CSDMS EKT repository?
Yes, CSDMS can help with making your model project results available to geosciences, environmental sciences and engineering students and the general public by adding them to the EKT repository; simply as documented animations or as lectures or more elaborately designed classroom modeling excercises. There is no cookie-cutter way of doing as of now, but CSDMS EKT specialists will gladly work with you in the proposal phase. CSDMS can write a letter of support that elaborates on the plan.
