DescriptionAs earth system prediction models continue to increase in complexity, so do the high-performance computing (HPC) requirements for running these models. Unfortunately, current HPC platforms are designed, built and optimized for a broad array of computationally intensive applications which results in them being inefficient for earth system prediction applications. Specifically, recent top HPC platforms are mostly optimized for machine learning, artificial intelligence, and n-body simulations. They are not designed with the specific purpose of solving partial differential equations (PDEs), such as the Navier-Stokes equations, which are the foundation of earth system modeling.
