The Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System (CSDMS) deals with the Earth's surface - the ever-changing, dynamic interface between lithosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, and atmosphere. We are a diverse community of experts promoting the modeling of earth surface processes by developing, supporting, and disseminating integrated software modules that predict the movement of fluids, and the flux (production, erosion, transport, and deposition) of sediment and solutes in landscapes and their sedimentary basins.
Becoming a member of CSDMS and actively participating in community activities provides benefits for a variety of member types. We are a community of earth surface process modelers; CSDMS provides open-access to numerical models, maintains data for modelers and educational resources on earth science modeling for teachers, provides computing resources for members, offers help in advanced model coupling, and is a platform of discussion for earth science research. We realize you may fit different categories, we all wear different hats at times. Common trait is that you will be part of a family of experts sharing research to advance quantitative earth surface process modeling.
