ESiWACE: Towards cloud resolving climate models

Quantitative estimates for extreme weather situations are of essential importance. For this purpose, simulation models are required that are able to resolve clouds as well as fine-scale eddies in ocean flow. These models have to provide a resolution of one kilometer and need to be able to predict several months per calendar day. ESiWACE combines weather and climate sciences and targets the optimization of simulation workflows on supercomputers. A main goal is the investigation of technical feasibility and limitations of cloud-resolving models.
