Common Community Physics Package (CCPP)

Depiction of the concept of a Common Community Physics Package Ecosystem. Although an officially-supported version of the CCPP exists (within bold-outlined oval), the software infrastructure allows for use (largest oval) and development (second-largest oval) from within the broader community. The operational physics suite can be drawn from the supported CCPP

The Common Community Physics Package (CCPP) is designed to facilitate the implementation of physics innovations in state-of-the-art atmospheric models, the use of various models to develop physics, and the acceleration of transition of physics innovations to operational NOAA models.
