Joint Session 54 High-performance Computing for Numerical Weather Prediction - II

Thursday, 16 January 2020: 8:30 AM-9:30 AM
257AB (Boston Convention and Exhibition Center)
Hosts: (Joint between the 30th Conference on Weather Analysis and Forecasting (WAF)/26th Conference on Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP); and the Sixth Symposium on High Performance Computing for Weather, Water, and Climate )
Ryan A. Lagerquist, CIMMS, Meteorology, Norman, OK; Kandis Boyd, OAR, Office of Weather and Air Quality, Silver Spring, MD and Timothy S. Sliwinski, Texas Tech Univ., Department of Geosciences, Atmospheric Science Group, Lubbock, TX

This will be a joint session between the 6th Symposium on High-performance Computing for Weather, Water, and Climate (6HPC) and the 26th Conference on Numerical Weather Prediction (26NWP). This session will explore the use of high-performance computing to develop, run, enhance the performance of, and post-process output from numerical weather models such as WRF, convection-allowing models, convection-allowing ensembles, etc. Abstract topics may include (but are not limited to) improving computational efficiency, improving scalability, preparing for exascale computing, and optimizing numerical weather models to benefit from the use of specialized hardware in HPC environments, such as graphical processing units (GPUs).
