Abstract : This report documents the results of optimizing the computational kernel of the National Meteorological Center (NMC) weather forecasting model running on the Thinking Machines Corporation CM-5. The baseline for this optimization work is a basic version of the kernel which runs on both the CM-S and CM-200. An optimized version for the CM-S is produced and its performance is compared with the basic version on both CM-S and CM-200 as well as the best-performing CM-200 version. (KAR) P. 2
