Abstract of the talk
We will discuss a geostatistics project which uses many of our high performance computing tools. We
will be working with Fortran with Message Passing Interface, and OpenACC. We will see how these tools
bring about extensive speed up, along with enhanced capabilities. We will show how we can analyze 9
years of daily data from the Irish wind data set in 35 minutes, which includes inverting a 39400 x 39400
matrix. The second part of the talk will discuss how to use these tools, including setup, and some simple
examples. We will look at some simple programs in MPI and OpenACC.
