Both high-resolution uniform grid and variable resolution grid
on the cubed sphere are introduced to better represent weather
process over Korean Peninsula and neighboring regions, and will be
adopted to the existing non-hydrostatic dynamic core using
spectral element method. The sub-grid scale physics will be
upgraded to meet with the varying grid spacing ranging from 12km
down to 1km, covering the grey zone.
To extend the predictability up to 30 days in advance, the
model will be coupled with various earth system components
including land surface, ocean, sea ice, and chemical processes.
Software engineering includes parallelization of codes,
couplers, workflow management in the supercomputer environment.
