Accelerate Routines in CCSM4

Accelerate routines within the CCSM4 project using GP-GPU

Location: Niels Bohr Institutet, University of Copenhagen (UCHP), Copenhagen, Denmark

Project Abstract:

The Community Earth System Model (CESM) is a fully-coupled, global climate model that provides state-of-the-art computer simulations of the Earth’s past, present, and future climate states. In order to improve the simulations, the resolution and complexity of the model is constantly increased, which in turn increases the computational demand of the model.

The proposed project is to use GP-GPU in order to answer this increasingly computational demand. The student will analyse CCSM4 and identify functions that may benefit from GP-GPU execution and then port these functions to GP-GPU.
