dc.description.abstractA coarse-grain parallelization of SHORECIRC - a quasi-3D nearshore circulation model is implemented. The parallelization is based on the message-passing model for distributed memory architectures using the Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard. The parallel model confirms to the Single Program Multiple Data (SPMD) model. The results from the parallel model have been verified against those from the sequential model for an exact match. The parallel code is portable across different parallel architectures and its performance in terms of speed-up and scalability is studied. A test case simulating rip currents is discussed.
