  • SSI’s work means the software is robust enough that it can be installed and used by others
    • Enabled use of the software by the WWFN’sClimascope project and James Cook University
      • Documented software to allow extensions by contributors
      • Made it easier to maintain and backup
      • Added job scheduling to improve modeling throughput
      • New modelling framework enables new models i.e. new science
