About the Organisation

The Max Planck Society (MPG) is Germany's most successful research organization established in 1948. The 83 Max Planck Institutes and facilities (as of 2017) conduct basic research in the service of the general public in the natural sciences, life sciences, social sciences, and the humanities. Continuous renewal in the institutional structure preserves the scope the Max Planck Society needs to react quickly to pioneering scientific developments. The MPG contributes to the project with the institute for meteorology.

Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M, is dedicated to fundamental climate research. The overall mission of MPI-M is to understand how chemical, physical, and biological processes, as well as human behavior contribute to the dynamics of the Earth system, and specifically how they relate to global climate changes. The institute comprises three departments: The Atmosphere in the Earth System; The Land in the Earth System and The Ocean in the Earth System and hosts independent research groups focused on Fire in the Earth System, Forest Management in the Earth System, Sea Ice in the Earth System, Stratosphere and Climate as well as Turbulent Mixing Processes in the Earth System.


Role in ESCAPE2

Partner, Co-Lead of WP2: Programming Models & Domain-specific Languages. Specifically, MPG contributes to ESCPAE-2 as follows: 

WP1: Algorithms and Mathematics

  • Extraction and providing ICON-OCE and PSRad dwarfs

WP2: Programming Models & Domain-specific Languages

  • participation in the requirements capture and design of a high level DSL
  • participation in the application of DSL to ICON related dwarfs
  • participation in the evaluation of DSL usability and testing of adapted dwarfs
  • demonstration of the application of the domain specific language toolchain to the above dwarfs

WP3: Weather & Climate Benchmarks

  • contribution to the definition of ICON based benchmarks
  • implementation of reference global configurations of the above dwarfs for the HPCW v0-benchmarks, integration, validation and benchmark of the novel DSL OCE and Rad dwarfs in the tier-1 benchmark suite
  • contribution to the definition and assembly of the HPCW benchmark suite.
