Project Description
NASA Ames Research Center will host a two-week short course focused on the characteristics of community climate and ecosystem models and the use of high-performance computing (HPC) to run and analyze them. The course is targeted at researchers in Earth-system modeling (graduate students, post-docs, professors, etc.) who have a working knowledge of one or more model codes but would like to extend their application to larger extents or higher spatio-temporal resolutions and would like to learn to effectively utilize supercomputing systems toward this end. The course will explore the typical algorithmic patterns that occur in climate and biogeochemical model codes and potential approaches to parallelizing them. High-resolution global and continental NASA data sets will be available to attendees through the NASA Earth Exchange (NEX). Time and assistance will be provided to parallelize and port a community climate or ecosystem model code onto Pleiades, the main NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) computer.
