A Statement on Programming Languages in Earth System Modelling by the ENES HPC Task Force

last modified Jun 17, 2015 03:05 PM
The ENES High Performance Computing Task Force issues a Statement on Programming Languages in Earth System Modelling.

The ENES High Performance Computing Task Force, established to give strategic advice to the ENES board and take care about problems the Earth system modelling community faces with respect to High Performance Computing, observes with growing concern a tendency in the HPC community to propose the use of „new" programming languages to re-engineer applications for the ever-changing modern architectures.

The ENES community is already actively involved in testing, developing and applying modern programming paradigms. It is however not possible, due to the costs involved, to completely re-write existing climate models, currently very well expressed in FORTRAN with some use of C and C++. The development timescale of these codes is much longer than the lifetime of systems, architectures or even special languages involved.
