CHAMMPions Collaboration

A collaborative project between Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Argonne National Laboratory and the National Center for Atmospheric Research is addressing the use of massively parallel computers for climate modeling. Besides a range of research projects involving numerical methods and parallel algorithms for climate modeling, the NCAR Community Climate Model, CCM2, has been implemented on the Intel Paragon, the Thinking Machines CM-5 and the IBM SP-2. This collaboration is supported by the CHAMMP program of the Department of Energy, Environmental Sciences Division of the Office of Biological and Environmental Research and by the National Science Foundation through a cost sharing agreement with NCAR.
