ROOM:384-385

ABSTRACT:
The climate and numerical weather prediction community has worked feverishly over the last several decades to successfully port atmospheric models to high performance computers. The emergence of new, massively parallel architectures incorporating multi-core / many-core processors is yet another challenge. The community is taking on this challenge aggressively by revising and optimizing existing algorithms, proposing new numerical techniques, and employing innovative semi-structured grids to describe the earth's atmosphere. Our panelists are all accomplished in the leading edge of modeling on high performance computers. They will present and discuss the variety of techniques used and being developed today for the latest parallel architectures, analyze the numerical issues which result from the need to attain high performance, and will shed light on the future of climate modeling and numerical weather prediction. The session will end with questions from the audience to the panel.
