Weather and Climate Computing within the European HPC Strategy

The european climate community is represented by the European Network for Earth System Modelling (ENES). Since, numerical weather prediction and climate modelling require more computing power, it is a driver for further HPC developments. Therefore, it takes part in the European HPC Strategy and participate in all three funding pillars (see Figure).

HPC facilities

Access to HPC facillities are provided by the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE). For advices on all relavant issues of HPC for the European climate modelling community, such as those related to the PRACE European facility and software developments, the HPC Task force of ENES was established.
The European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) aims to acquire two pre-exascale machines by 2020 and finally, in 2023 two exascale systems, at least one of them with European technology.


HPC technologies (FETHPC)

Future emerging technologies for weather and climate modelling are developed within the projects:


Beside the ESiWACS and ESiWACE2 projects, adaption of leading weather and climate models on (pre-)exascale systems are provided by the folowing projects:
