Abstract
WE PROPOSE THE DEVELOPMENT OF GLOBAL SPECTRAL NUMERICAL WEATHER PREDICTION (NWP) MODELS SPECIALLY DESIGNED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MULTIPROCESSING COMPUTERS. SEVERAL CANDIDATE ALGORITHMS WILL BE DESIGNED AND ANALYZED. THE BEST DESIGNS WILL BE CODED AND TESTED IN A SIMULATED MULTIPROCESSOR. THIS STUDY IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE OPERATIONAL NWP IS TIME CONSTRAINED AND LIMITED BY AVAILABLE COMPUTING POWER. FURTHER ADVANCES IN NWP REQUIRE EFFICIENT USE OF MULTIPROCESSORS. THE RESULTS OF THIS STUDY SHOULD ALSO AID ALL ATMOSPHERIC RESEARCHERS WHO USE GLOBAL SCALE MODELS. OUR APPROACH WILL INCLUDE CONSIDERATION OF DIFFERENT POSSIBLE MULTIPROCESSOR DESIGNS.
