CSDMS Model Repository

CSDMS maintains a code and metadata repository for numerical models and scientific software tools. The CSDMS Model Repository, initialized in 2009, now holds over 300 open source models and tools.

To submit code to the Repository, follow the three-step process on the Contribute a Model page.
