Joint Session 6 Advances in Prediction and Analysis of Hydrological Models Using Highperformance Computing

Wednesday, 25 January 2017: 4:00 PM-5:30 PM
Conference Center: Chelan 2 (Washington State Convention Center )
Hosts: (Joint between the Third Symposium on High Performance Computing for Weather, Water, and Climate; and the 31st Conference on Hydrology )
Brian J. Etherton, ESRL/GSD, High Performance Computing Section, Boulder, CO and John N. McHenry, Baron Advanced Meteorological Systems, LLC, Chief Scientist, Raleigh, NC

Numerical simulation of hydrologic processes has be practiced for many years. Although HPC is widely utilized in atmospheric modeling, its role in hydrological modeling has been less profound. In this joint session, we are seeking abstracts that focus on hydrological modeling processes which require, and utilize HPC resources to improve the overall understanding of the extremes of flood and drought. More specifically, we are interested in abstracts which demonstrate improved coupling of hydrologic and atmospheric models (supported on the same computing platform); support large-scale hydrologic models at increased spatial resolutions; instances of coupled modeling systems running in an ensemble system to better express model uncertainty; and, abilities to process large datasets (multiterabyte volumes).
