Some of you may be familiar with CSDMS, the Community Sediment
Dynamics Modeling System. (full disclosure: I am currently chair of
the Education and Knowledge Transfer Working Group). We are working
to gather free online materials related to modeling of surface
processes (models, animations, lectures and texts on modeling) to make
them available for teaching purposes. The texts and lectures are
currently primarily at the graduate level, but we hope to expand this.

Materials are here: http://csdms.colorado.edu/wiki/Products

We welcome participation in the Education and Knowlege Transfer
Working Group; please consider participating:

Thanks!
