Hi Bill,

Thanks, I like the design so far.  I agree with keeping this page simple and including a few useful links.  The web-based documentation is a big improvement on the old Word doc.

The link to the old Glimmer documentation should be replaced with a link to CISM2 documentation.  By release time, we should be able to link to updated 2.1 docs rather than the original 2.0 docs.

Hey Bill - is this documentation for just CISM, or broader coupling/SMB stuff?

Hi all,

The upcoming documentation for CISM in CESM2.0 will be here:


If you have any ideas for text / info that should appear on that main landing page, let me know and/or see the email below.

Hi all,

The CESM2.0 HTML model pages are in active development and need your help.

As liaisons, please communicate with your respective WG members who will be contributing to the web content, the following information:

URL: http://www.cesm.ucar.edu/models/cesm2.0

Physical Directory on CGD machines:  /cesmweb/html/models/cesm2.0

The bulk of the content changes required by the working groups is in the gh-pages ReStructured Text user's guides and the component subdirs in /cesmweb/html/modesl/cesm2.0/:

atmosphere  - should include WACCM, CAM-Chem and link to stand-alone diag tools (AMWG)
land - should include land BGC and link to stand-alone diag tools (LMWG)
land-ice  - include link to stand-alone diag tools (LIWG)
ocean - should include ocn BGC and link to stand-alone diag tools (OMWG)
sea-ice - needs a link to stand-alone diag tools (PCWG)
river - includes RTM,Mosart needs a link to stand-alone diag tools as part of lnd diags(LMWG)
wave - (OMWG?)

Please review all links and references to previous versions of the models and only include
those that will run with CESM2.0.

*PLEASE* let Erika do any design layout work. She's worked really hard to make sure
the new CESM website is clean and scales nicely on all kinds of devices. If you'd like
images added to your pages or styles added, then it will be best to work with Erika by sending email to webhelp at cgd.ucar.edu.

We're still working on the dynamic building of namelist documentation, compsets, grids
and machines using the XML files as input so those will be coming soon.

Here's some guidelines for adding content:

1. Please try and follow these basic 8 rules for good web page design:


2. Please do NOT add in-line style to HTML elements. Talk to Erika first to see if styles
can be added to cascading style sheets for consistency.

3. Please be mindful of screen real-estate and making sure the most important information
sits "above the fold" (i.e. before the user has to start scrolling down the screen).

Let me know if you have any questions or need help working with the gh-pages rst or html.
