Implementation and performance of a parallel sigma-coordinate ocean model
Reports in Informatics No. 163, January 1999, Department of
Informatics, University of Bergen, Norway.
This report is a documentation of the techniques applied for making a
parallel version of the sigma-coordinate ocean model due to Berntsen,
Skogen and Espelid , with recent modifications given by Berntsen
. Results are given for a quadratic and constant depth closed basin
and the North Sea, both with 20 km and 4 km horizontal resolution, and
the speedups obtained are discussed.
