In this video from the HPC User Forum in Broomfield, Christopher Hill from MIT presents: HPC in Earth & Planetary Science – Examples from Research using an Ocean (and beyond) Model.

The MITgcm (MIT General Circulation Model) is a numerical model designed for study of the atmosphere, ocean, and climate. Its non-hydrostatic formulation enables it to simulate fluid phenomena over a wide range of scales; its adjoint capability enables it to be applied to parameter and state estimation problems. By employing fluid isomorphisms, one hydrodynamical kernel can be used to simulate flow in both the atmosphere and ocean.
