Portal getting started with WMT
Get started with WMT
The CSDMS Web Modeling Tool (WMT) allows you to run and couple CSDMS model components through the web in a user-friendly software environment. Components in the WMT are based on models, originally submitted to the CSDMS model repository, and now adapted to communicate with other models.The WMT tool is the environment in which you can link these components together to run new simulations. The WMT software operates through the web and communicates with the CSDMS HPCC, to perform the simulations.
Step 1: Become a CSDMS member
You need to become a CSDMS member. Sign up!
Step 2: fill in a HPCC project page
For its sponsors, CSDMS tries to document for what reasons everyone uses our high performance computing cluster. Therefore, please fill in a project page here. We will advertize your work for you on the HPCC project page.
Step 3: Request a HPCC account
The University of Colorado requires that you have a special user account to log on to the CSDMS HPCC. It is free for CSDMS members with modeling needs, but it does need to be specially setup for you (this takes a few days). To request an account sign up here.
What does the WMT software look like and how do you use it? Here we posted a number of links to get you started.

Run a stand-alone model
A presentation explains how to run one of the components as a stand-alone model.
Running a Coupled Model
A presentation explains how to run three coupled components: a river branching over the floodplain and building a delta.
Modules in the WMT
See this list for an overview of the WMT compatible models.
WMT modules help pages
Each of the modules in the WMT has one or more help files describing how to use the module, what each of the input parameters means, and some example files are provided as well. Learn more about a module by reading the help documentation.
