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.
