Session

14.09.2017     16:30–18:30

Title:
MS81
Quality assurance and sustainable development of simulation software in the geosciences • Part II
Type:
Subsurface models (cryoshpere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, pedoshpere)
Room:

Developing research software for computational modeling in the geosciences faces many challenges due to the ever-growing complexity of mathematical models, software dependencies and computer architectures. The fundamental challenge of assuring the quality of the developed software can be tackled by establishing a sustainable development process that emphasizes quality measures such as reliability, accuracy and reusability. This minisymposium will address the scientific as well as the practical questions arising from this endeavor. Several small to medium-size projects will present their approaches, experiences and recommendations for developing simulation software in the geosciences. The main aspects to be discussed are automated testing, open-source development, software design, usability, archiving and reproducibility.
