Technology Transfer in Tropical Cyclone Numerical Modeling â?? The role of the Developmental Testbed Center (DTC)

The Hurricane Weather, Research and Forecasting (HWRF) model is one of two NOAA operational regional numerical weather prediction (NWP) models for tropical cyclones. HWRF is an important component of the numerical guidance used at the National Hurricane Center for tropical storm forecasting. For that reason, it is critical that HWRF be continuou...

The HFIP High-Resolution Hurricane Forecast test: overview and results of track and intensity forecast verification

The Hurricane Forecast Improvement Project (HFIP) High-Resolution Hurricane (HRH) Test was conducted by the Developmental Testbed Center from March 2008 through September 2009 in order to assess the impacts of using higher horizontal resolution in hurricane numerical forecasting. The plan for this test was developed jointly by a broad range of c...

An Update on the Parallelization of the FV3 Model for cpu , gpu , and MIC Processors

NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) has been working on the parallelization of the FV3 dynamical core toward fine-grain GPU and MIC processors. Initial work focused on modifying the code to expose more loop level parallelism needed to run efficiently on GPU processors containing over 3000 processing cores. Code changes have been quite...
