Rupert Ford and Andrew Porter are Computational Scientists working collaboratively with the Met Office to develop PSyclone.
The Hartree Centre are developing an application called PSyclone that can generate the parallel code for LFRic, the UK Met Office's new weather and climate modelling system, enabling deployment of a single source science code onto different machine architectures.
PSyclone is a collaborative open source project with regular contributors from the Hartree Centre, Met Office and Australian Bureau of Meteorology.
A new paper published in the Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing gives an introduction to the LFRic model, but also explains the use of PSyclone and details the benefits of its use within LFRic. Read it in full here.
