Current and Future Development of the Nonhydrostatic Unified Model of the Atmosphere
MetadataShow full item record
Our goal is to construct numerical methods for non-hydrostatic mesoscale and global atmospheric models (for NWP applications); this is a unified model. The reason for this is economics - one (production) model is cheaper to support or at the very least, having the same dynamics simplifies a great many things (e.g. training future developers).
ESPC Talk, September 9, 2010Non-hydrostatic Unified Model of the Atmosphere (NUMA)NUMA2D is an exact replica of NUMA3D; however, NUMA3D is a fully parallel MPI (messaging passing interface) code. NUMA3D was begun in earnest in December of 2009.
