Abstract:

Develop an advanced global atmospheric forecast system designed to exploit massively parallel processor MPP, distributed memory computer architectures. Future increases in computer power from MPPs will allow substantial increases in model resolution, more realistic physical processes, and more sophisticated data assimilation methods, all of which will improve operational numerical weather predictions and provide better simulations of the Earths climate.
