Title: A Report of The Climate Model Development in US, from Boulder, CO.
Speaker: Ryuji Yoshida (Unversity of Colorado Boulder, CIRES/NOAA ESRL)
Presentation Language: Japanese
Presentation Material: English
A report about one example of the climate model development in United States of America will be made. The presenter is involved in the development of Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM) through a project sponsored by the Scientific Discovery through Advanced Computing (SciDAC). E3SM is designed for a high resolution, sophisticated simulation of Earth's climate. The purposes of the development are to understand water cycle, biochemistry, and cryosphere-ocean system for the energy solution. For this goal, machine learning and GPU computing are emphasized to achieve a better physical and computational performance. This earth system model is assumed to run on the next generation of DOE's supercomputer "Shasta”, which has been just announced by Cray, and the processor will be mixed with AMD, Intel, ARM, and GPUs. Developers are seeking an appropriate approach from various ways to prepare for the next generation machine that they don't know.
