  Upstream Author : NESII (NOAA Environmental Software Infrastructure and
Interoperability) <http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/nesii>

  Programming Lang: Fortran, C++, Python
  Description     : Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF)

The Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF) collaboration is high-performance,
flexible software infrastructure for building and coupling weather, climate,
and related Earth science applications. The ESMF defines an architecture for
composing complex, coupled modeling systems and includes data structures and
utilities for developing individual models.
The basic idea behind ESMF is that complicated applications should be broken up
into coherent pieces, or components, with standard calling interfaces. In ESMF,
a component may be a physical domain, or a function such as a coupler or I/O
system. ESMF also includes toolkits for building components and applications,
such as regridding software, calendar management, logging and error handling,
and parallel communications.

The latest NetCDF release which the Debian GIS Team has switched to, no longer
includes the libcf library to manage Climate and Forecast standards compliant
data files.

The Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF) provides this functionality and
more, so the Debian GIS Team would like to see it packaged for Debian. The
Debian Science Team (Meteorology) may also be interested in the package.
