Organic Modeling Systems
Abstract:This paper advocates a paradigm shift for the development and management of ocean-model systems, away from integration and toward adaptation. Indeed, oceanographic and related models are becoming increasingly intertwined; yet, the diversity of platforms on which they reside, the autonomy of their primary objectives and the rapidity with which they are created and modified combine to create a situation wherein centralization and model integration become inefficient and frustrating. The long-term remedy, it is argued, lies in the development of adaptable techniques for the exchange of information between models. Such approach would mimic ecosystems. Pertinent lessons can also be drawn from the business sector.
