Contribute to CSDMS
Members are strongly encouraged to fully participate at all levels of the CSDMS community. This includes providing model code and support tools, educational material (lectures, simulation movies, images, labs), and data for model initialization, testing and benchmarking. We also encourage members to use the community contributed models and provide feedback both to the working groups and authors --- what could be added, model successes and model limitations.
As a community effort, contributing to our groups is perhaps the finest way of focusing one's efforts. Let the chair of the appropriate group know that you want to be involved, in what capacity and how to best utilize your skills. This then could help maximize the impact of collective efforts. Working with others is the best way of getting things done.
Software vetting has three components: 1) verification that the model behaves as advertised; 2) confirmation that the code meets specifications, i.e. accompanied with metadata documentation or meets community protocols; and 3) demonstration that the model provides an accurate depiction of nature. In the world of community modeling, it is usual for software to be reviewed by a working group of specialists.
Finally the CSDMS community would like to hear of your success stories of advancing earth surface dynamics science.
Submit your model source code
Provide Educational Material
Share your educational material. CSDMS has a EKT repository ready to be filled with your material! Please provide movies or model animations, labs, lectures, textbooks or earth surface images so other people can use them.
Edit the CSDMS wiki
This would be a good start to look if you want to make changes to the website.Read more...
