High performance computing
C2SM aims to prepare climate codes for the next generation of high-performance computers to exploit the emerging computing capabilities and thereby continue to contribute at the highest level to climate system science.
C2SM is involved in the Swiss Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC), which goal is to promote collaborations between domain scientists, computational scientists and software and hardware vendors and providers. C2SM's involvement in PASC strongly relies on the active collaboration between ETH and MeteoSwiss together with the Swiss National Supercomputing Center (CSCS).
C2SM leads the network for "Climate and Atmospheric Modelling", which is one of the five relevant domain science chosen for network building in the frame of PASC.
C2SM currently hosts two PASC projects:
- The Grid Tools project: Grid Tools: Towards a library for hardware oblivious implementation of stencil based codes
- The CLAW project: CLAW provides high-Level Abstractions for Weather and climate Models
