Abstract:

The introduction of highly parallel machines with peak performance significantly exceeding the Cray machines has sparked interest in running scientific models on these new architectures. This report describes a software conversion, of the Navy model called TOPS, starting with a Cray Y-MP8 version in Fortran 77 and ending with a Fortran 90 version for the Connection Machine CM-5. Data mapping, conversion planning, and performance points of view are considered. Connection machine, Fortran 90, Ocean modeling.
