Physics Modules

The parallel model adopts the use of columnar physics modules that are ``plug compatible''. The CHAMMP development group adopts the guidelines set forth in ``Rules for Interchange of Physical Parameterizations'', by Kalnay, Kanamitsu, Pfaendtner, Sela, Suarez, Stackpole, Tuccillo, Umscheid and Williamson. These rules are duplicated for reference purposes.

As point physics methods are developed these should also be plug-compatible with the appropriate extension and modification of the above rules.
