Reduced-precision arithmetic in numerical weather prediction with an emphasis on data assimilation

Abstract:

The skill of weather forecasts has improved dramatically over the past 30 years. This improvement has depended to a large degree on developments in supercomputing, which have allowed models to increase in complexity and resolution with minimal technical effort. However, the nature of supercomputing is undergoing a significant change, with the advent of extremely parallel and heterogeneous architectures. This paradigm shift threatens the continual increase of forecast skill and prompts a re...
