EPIC will continually inform and accelerate advances in our nation’s operational forecast modeling systems.
The Unified Forecast System (UFS) Community is creating a new experience for scientists, joining forces for the benefit of life.
The EPIC Program and Virtual Center will deliver world-class numerical weather prediction systems supporting NOAA.
EPIC will provide comprehensive user support services to enable a broad and vibrant community of UFS users and developers. User support services will nurture a collaborative, community-based framework to support, advise and educate developers and software users.
EPIC oversees a robust repository infrastructure containing source code for each unique component of the UFS application.
Teams staff a central communication forum to ensure access and usability by all community members, regardless of level of expertise.
EPIC’s comprehensive code and science-based documentation will promote UFS usability among researchers, developers, and students.
NOAA is using a community modeling framework to develop their operational modeling systems. The Unified Forecast System (UFS) is composed of component systems – these could be model components or infrastructure components – and applications that connect some or more of these components together to make a computational model and bundle it with an end-to-end workflow.
The EPIC website features the most up-to-date news, that is of interest to the Earth sciences community.
EPIC has launched its website with exciting information about developments that will transform the Earth sciences community into a collaborative community for earth systems modeling.
The Community Modeling Board will provide community members with the opportunity to accelerate the unified production of world-leading, fully coupled, Earth system models for research, operations, and applications. See how you can get involved!
EPIC’s user base and community participation is steadily growing!
