ABSTRACT:

This report presents results from an online survey of members of the Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System (CSDMS) conducted in 2021. A total of 135 responses were received from community members. Demographics indicate the same lack of diversity that applies across the US geosciences. The survey indicates strong interest in CSDMS' community-building activities, and suggests that CSDMS has succeeded in lowering the barrier to code sharing and access. Continuing technical barriers relate in part to developing and debugging codes for modeling and model-data analysis, and to learning and using software created by colleagues. There is a strong need for cyber-learning opportunities, with desired training modes including multi-day in-person courses and self-paced online materials. Interest is growing in CSDMS products such as Landlab, and services such as research software consulting. Collectively, the survey highlights continuing needs for community engagement on a variety of levels: more training opportunities; networking and interaction; technical support and assistance; barrier-bridging technologies; and proactive outreach to broaden access to and participation in the Earth-surface process community.

ABSTRACT:

This resource includes tutorial Jupyter Notebooks for Python Modeling Toolkit (pymt https://pymt.readthedocs.io). Pymt was developed by the Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System (CSDMS https://csdms.colorado.edu/), that provides the tools needed for coupling models that expose the Basic Model Interface (BMI https://bmi.readthedocs.io/).

HydroShare users can test and run those Jupyter Notebooks directly through the "CUAHSI JupyterHub" web app with the following steps:
- click on the "Open with" button. (on the top right corner of the page)
- select "CUAHSI JupyterHub". (Need to join the CUAHSI JupyterHub group for the first time web app user.)
- select "CSDMS Workbench" server option. (Make sure to select the right server option.)

For more details, please check the "Instruction" PDF file listed in this resource. If you have trouble running those notebooks, please create a GitHub issue at the CSDMS Help Desk: https://github.com/csdms/help-desk/issues

ABSTRACT:

This resource includes a bunch of Jupyter Notebooks for Landlab (https://landlab.github.io), which is an open-source Python-language package for numerical modeling of Earth surface dynamics. There are two groups of Jupyter Notebooks in this resource: 1) "teaching": for people who are an educator looking for tutorials to use in the classroom. 2) "tutorial": for people who are interested in teaching themselves Landlab.
