  Description     : Python Interface for the Earth System Modeling Framework

The Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF) collaboration is high-performance,
flexible software infrastructure for building and coupling weather, climate,
and related Earth science applications. The ESMF defines an architecture for
composing complex, coupled modeling systems and includes data structures and
utilities for developing individual models.
The basic idea behind ESMF is that complicated applications should be broken up
into coherent pieces, or components, with standard calling interfaces. In ESMF,
a component may be a physical domain, or a function such as a coupler or I/O
system. ESMF also includes toolkits for building components and applications,
such as regridding software, calendar management, logging and error handling,
and parallel communications.
ESMP is a Python interface to ESMF grid remapping functions.

ESMF is the subject of a different ITP (
As for ESMF, ESMP will be maintained within the Debian Science Team (or Debian

Although upstream call the package ESMP, this is also the acronym for the
Embedded Systems Modeling Platform from Eclipse, so this package will be named
ESMF-ESMP to avoid confusion.
