The Dawn of Massively Parallel Processing in Meteorology: Proceedings of the 3rd Workshop on Use of Parallel Processors in Meteorology

The sunrise of vastly Parallel Processing in Meteorology offers gathered papers of the 3rd workshop in this subject held on the ecu Centre of Medium-Range climate Forecasts (ECMWF). It presents an perception into the state-of-the-art in utilizing parallel processors operationally, and permits extrapolation to different time-critical purposes.
