Abstract

Modeling scientific applications requires a seamless integration of an extensible collection of external software tools and data stores, whose formats and behavior cannot be fixed a priori. This paper presents a system that supports a generic and comprehensive interface for scientific modeling, especially targeted to geographic and hydrological research. We illustrate how meta-level concepts can be used to provide a uniform environment in which a user may access and manipulate external resources while being shielded from irrelevant computational and distribution issues.
