GPU accelerated weather simulation code COSMO presented by CSCS at SC15


22 Nov 2015 - Peter Messmer (NVIDIA and NVIDIA Co-Design Lab for Hybrid Multicore Computing and ETH Zurich) gave a presentation about interactive weather models on GPU accelerated systems at the CSCS booth at SC15. Peter showed the GPU accelerated weather simulation code COSMO running live on the Meteoswiss system at CSCS with immediate visualization of the ongoing simulation. The simulation runs about 20x faster than real time with grid cells of 1km. The simulation makes it possible to modify the surface temperature and the wind direction in areas of the simulation domain.
