Ongoing research project | 2011
OpenIFS provides research institutions with an easy-to-use version of the ECMWF IFS (Integrated Forecasting System). OpenIFS provides the forecast capability of IFS (no data assimilation), a Single Column Model (SCM) version, supporting software and documentation. OpenIFS has a support team at ECMWF for technical assistance but limited resources for detailed scientific assistance.
- Release and support the OpenIFS model to external users for research and teaching.
- Increase the number of external academic users of IFS through OpenIFS.
- Increase the number of collaborations between ECMWF and academic institutions.
- Improve IFS through external research collaborations.
OpenIFS is free but requires a license from ECMWF.
