I have in the past many months working on integrating a land surface model into WRF. While the code is stable and works well, I would now like to start working towards releasing the code as a part of the WRF release. My target is to do so within one year. I would be grateful if someone from the WRF Developers Committee and/or the Research board is appointed as a point of contact.

I am also proposing a new model development that is apart from my LSM model but may have significant impact on my project but also on many other research areas where land-atmosphere interaction is crucial. It would useful to get some expert opinion before I embark on this.

Please advice,
