QNH: Design and test of a quasi-nonhydrostatic model for mesoscale weather prediction

A new mesoscale weather prediction model, called QNH, is described. It is characterized by a parameter that multiplies the hydrostatic terms in the vertical equation of motion. Models of this type are referred to generically as ``quasi-nonhydrostatic.'' The quasi-nonhydrostatic parameter gives the model a character that is essentially nonhydros...

The Use of Quasi-Nonhydrostatic Models for Mesoscale Weather Prediction

In recent years, there has been extensive study of the mathematical basis of weather prediction leading to a new system of continuous equations that are well posed, and a set of conditions that make discrete atmospheric and other models stable and potentially more accurate. In particular, the theory deals with initial boundary value problems tha...

Parallelization and Performance of the NIM Weather Model on CPU, GPU, and MIC Processors

The design and performance of the Non-Hydrostatic Icosahedral Model (NIM) global weather prediction model is described. NIM is a dynamical core designed to run on central processing unit (CPU), graphics processing unit (GPU), and Many Integrated Core (MIC) processors. It demonstrates efficient parallel performance and scalability to tens of thou...
