Abstract

The book examines the current state of using supercomputers to solve weather forecasting problems and study the Earth’s climate. It presents parallel implementations and trends in developing atmosphere and ocean models and joint models. Special attention is paid to the experience of developing and implementing global atmospheric, ocean and earth system models at the Institute of Computational Mathematics, the Russian Academy of Sciences. The earth system model consists of two main blocks: atmospheric and oceanic hydro-thermodynamic models and can also include blocks of sea ice evolution, carbon cycle and atmospheric chemistry.

The complete description of major climate-forming processes makes it possible to carry out numerical experiments on the reproduction of the modern climate, its past and probable future change under various assumptions based on the earth system model. It also provides an overview of the methods used to assimilate meteorological data and justifies the choice of the algorithms that are most suitable for implementation on a massively parallel architecture.
