ESCAPE aims to develop world-class, extreme-scale computing capabilities for European operational numerical weather prediction (NWP) and future climate models. ESCAPE addresses the ETP4HPC Strategic Research Agenda 'Energy and resiliency' priority topic, developing a holistic understanding of energy-efficiency for extreme-scale applications using heterogeneous architectures, accelerators and special compute units, to address the biggest hallenge for state-of-the-art NWP arises from the need to simulate complex physical phenomena within tight production schedules.

Numerical Weather Prediction
TitleTopicPresenter
Introduction to Numerical Weather PredictionWhy it is worth to make a weather forecast, the basic idea behind NWP, how to use observations, introduction to the advection problem differentiating spatial discretization methods.

Andreas Mueller (Andreas.mueller (at) ecmwf.int) - ECMWF

Dr. Andreas Mueller is a scientist in the numerical methods group at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). After his MSc in physics he developed a computer model for the simulation of atmospheric moist convection that allowed to use adaptive mesh refinement. He finished his PhD in the group of Prof. Volkmar Wirth at the University of Mainz in Germany in 2012. After finishing his PhD he was a visiting fellow in the program "Multiscale Numerics for the Atmosphere and Ocean" at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge, UK. In 2012, he received a four year grant by the National Research Council in Washington DC to work on optimizing the atmospheric model NUMA in the group of Prof. Francis X. Giraldo at the Naval Postgraduate School. Andreas moved to ECMWF in 2016 where he is working in the ESCAPE project on developing energy efficient scalable algorithms for weather prediction at exascale
