A couple of updates

We published a new research paper and submitted a manuscript to Geoscientific Model Development which is now available as a preprint.

The computational efficiency of ICAR

For a sensitivity study in a manuscript of ours that’s currently in the discussion phase at the HESS journal, we ran a couple of simulations with the Intermediate Complexity Atmospheric Research Model for the South Island of New Zealand. Horizontally the domain contained 205×225 grid points while the number of z-levels was varied between 7 and 25, corresponding to model top elevations above topography between 0.7 and 8.0 km. Here I talk a little bit about the computational performance of ICAR with regards to these simulations.
