Abstract:   Climate science is a heavy user of large-scale datasets and large-scale numerical simulations. It is never satisfied with the currently achievable degree of detail and tries to push the boundary between the 'resolved' processes and the 'unresolved' or 'subgrid' processes, which must be coarsely represented. The session will present state-of-the art approaches addressing the numerous challenges faced by high-resolution climate models preparing themselves to leverage the petascale and exascale computers to move the science further : designing scalable numerical schemes, coping with a wide array of massively parallel architectures, coupling heterogeneous models, managing and distributing data, let a wide community of non-HPC-expert scientists use and modify the models...
