Coordinates and administers the development or adoption of pan-community standards that accelerate knowledge scaffolding among modeling scientists.
Develops technologies and databases to help modeling scientists make their models more easily reusable by others and more easily interoperable with other models.
OPEN MODELING FOUNDATION CHARTER
We need a new generation of scientific modeling drawn from the social, ecological, biological, environmental, and geophysical sciences that can work together to provide an integrated representation of the complex world in which we now live. This vision can be realized through a common suite of standards, protocols, and best practices that enables modeling scientists to share knowledge and build on each other’s research.
A globally connected humanity is now a major driver of diverse earth system processes, creating a complex, planetary socio-ecological system that exceeds our innate capacity to anticipate the consequences of societal decisions and actions. Modeling is critical to enhancing analytical and decision-making capabilities for policy and planning, environmental management, resource investment, and security preparedness.
