CSDMS 2018 Webinars

CSDMS Basic Model Interface (BMI)

CSDMS Basic Model Interface (BMI) - When equipped with a Basic Model Interface, a model is given a common set of functions for configuring and running the model (as well as getting and setting its state). Models with BMIs can communicate with each other and be coupled in a modeling framework. The coupling of models from different authors in different disciplines may open new paths to scientific discovery. In this first of a set of webinars on the CSDMS BMI, we'll provide an overview of BMI and the functions that define it. This webinar is appropriate for new users of BMI, although experienced users may also find it useful.
