From 2006 to 2016, the National Science Foundation supported a Science and Technology Center called the Center for Multiscale Modeling of Atmospheric Processes (CMMAP). Over its ten-year lifetime, CMMAP involved more than two dozen collaborating institutions, led by Colorado State University. CMMAP was able to achieve several important and inter-related scientific advances that would have been very difficult to accomplish elsewhere. All of them relate to simulation of the global atmospheric circulation grid spacings fine enough to resolve mesoscale or cloud-scale circulations. In addition, CMMAP created a very compelling program that provided innovative science education opportunities for a diverse community of students. The wise counsel of Jay Fein was truly essential to CMMAP’s success.
