Rose - a framework for running meteorological suites


Rose is open source and freely available for general use.

Rose is a group of utilities and specifications which aim to provide a common way to manage the development and running of scientific application suites in both research and production environments.

Rose uses Cylc for its suite engine, developed collaboratively with Hilary Oliver at National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (New Zealand).


Send your feedback to the FCM team or post an issue on Rose at Github.

Support for external users is usually limited to those using Rose with Met Office software systems. However, we are always happy to receive bug reports/patches or to discuss requests for enhancements.
