Scientific development of a massively parallel ocean climate model. Final report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Over the last three years, very significant advances have been made in refining the grid resolution of ocean models and in improving the physical and numerical treatments of ocean hydrodynamics. Some of these advances have occurred as a result of the successful transition of ocean models onto massively parallel computers, which has been led by Los Alamos investigators. Major progress has been made in simulating global ocean circulation and in understanding various ocean climatic aspects such as the effect of wind driving on heat and freshwater transports. These steps have demonstrated the capability to conduct realistic decadal to century ocean ... continued below

These steps have demonstrated the capability to conduct realistic decadal to century ocean integrations at high resolution on massively parallel computers.
