CCPP Requirements

An initial proposal on requirements for interoperability of physical parameterizations and associated driver was created in November 2015. This proposal incorporated some materials produced previously by the Earth System Prediction Capability Physics Interoperability ESPC PI) team. Requirements evolved over the following year with input provided by EMC, the NGGPS Program Office, the NGGPS Physics Team, the EMC Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) Physics Working Group, and the ESPC PI team, with the most substantial revision being done in February 2016 with input from EMC. In 2018, the requirements were augmented to meet NCAR's goals for physics infrastructure and interoperability.
