The ScalES project addressed typical scaling problems of coupled earth system models. Scientists from DKRZ (also coordination), Alfred-Wegener-Institute for Polar and Marin Research, IBM Germany, Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, Max Planck Institute for Meteorology and Karlsruher Institute for Technology cooperated in creating software libraries of general use for improving the scaling of earth system models and beyond. Major components are parallel IO, partitioning and parallelization module, and global communication (UniTrans).
