The ufs-weather-model repository contains the model code and external links needed to build the Unified Forecast System (UFS) model and associated components, including the WaveWatch III model.

A Getting Started section leads you through a quick example. A Graduate Student Test is also available for students, postdocs and others to provide feedback on the usability of the UFS by running through a series of experiments and then filling out a questionnaire about the experience. Participate now!

UFS can be configured into multiple applications. The first of these to be released to the community is the UFS Medium-Range (MR) Weather Application. The table below provides links to App user guides, code repositories and wikis.
