Abstract
The new generations of multi-core chipset architectures achieve unprecedented levels of computational power while respecting physical and economical constraints. The cost of this power is bewildering program complexity. Atmospheric modeling is a grand-challenge problem that could make good use of these architectures if they were more accessible to the average programmer. To that end, software tools and programming methodologies that greatly simplify the acceleration of atmospheric modeling and simulation with emerging multi-core technologies are developed. A general model is developed to simulate atmospheric chemical transport and atmospheric chemical kinetics. ...
