At the Cyprus Institute the global atmospheric chemistry climate model EMAC (ECHAM/MESSy Atmospheric Chemistry) is used to simulate atmospheric chemistry and climate change with a focus on the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East. The model runs on several platforms including IBM's POWER6 and Intel systems. Climate and atmospheric chemistry simulations are compute-intensive applications and create large data sets. The EMAC model is constituted by a nonlocal meteorological part with low scalability, and local physical/chemical processes with high scalability. The model’s structure naturally suits the DEEP Architecture using the Cluster Nodes for the nonlocal part and the Booster Nodes for the local processes.
These simulations are done by The Cyprus Institute (CYI), Cyprus.
