Scalable algorithms for weather and climate prediction

The second phase of the project ESCAPE will start from October 1, 2018 for three years within the European framework Horizon 2020 "Transition to Exascale Computing". ESCAPE stands for "Energy-efficient Scalable Algorithms for Weather and Climate Prediction at Exascale". The successor project ESCAPE-2 aims to develop extreme-scale and energy-efficient methods for weather and climate prediction.

This involves both proven and new innovative algorithmic concepts and appropriate enhancements to the programming models to deal productively with the increasing parallelism and complexity of exascale HPC systems. The DKRZ, together with BULL SAS, is responsible for creating a benchmark suite with a performance characteristic representative of earth system models. In addition, tools from other research disciplines are used to estimate the uncertainty in forecasting. Twelve European partners, among them one of two Germans, cooperate in the consortium coordinated by the ECMWF.
