Abstract:

The long-term goal of this research is to construct global and mesoscale nonhydrostatic numerical weather prediction NWP models for the U.S. Navy using new numerical methods specifically designed for modern computer architectures. To take full advantage of distributed-memory computers, the global domains of these new models are partitioned into local sub-domains, or elements, which can then be solved independently on multiple processors. The numerical methods used on these subdomains are local, high-order accurate, fully conservative, and highly efficient. Using these ideas we are developing global and mesoscale nonhydrostatic atmospheric models that will improve upon the operational models currently used by all U.S. agencies including the U.S. Navy.
