The HD(CP)² project is a are BMBF funded research initiative to improve our understanding of cloud and precipitation processes and their implications for climate prediction. The inital phase of HD(CP)² started in Sept. 2012; the second phase of the project runs from April 2017 to March 2019.

The main task of DKRZ within the project is the parallelization and optimization of the ICON-LEM (ICOsahedral Non-hydrostatic Large Eddy Model) code to enable model hindcast experiments at very high horizontal (up to 156 m) and vertical resolution over Germany, the Tropical Atlantic and the North Atlantic. Moreover, DKRZ performs the central experiments on its supercomputer "Mistral", manages the data produced within the simulations and offers postprocessing and visualization support to the different project partners in Germany.
