The spectral transform method is the standard numerical technique for solvin,g partial differential equations on the sphere in global climate modeling. This paper describes the parallelization and performance of the spectral transform method for solving the nonlinear shallow water equations on the surface of a sphere using a 128-node Intel iPSC/SSO hypercube. This work is part of a research program to develop climate models that are capable of much longer and more numerous simulations at a… CONTINUE READING
