With climate change becoming an important topic in everyday life, the use of climate models for simulations is common. But these climate models are tools that demand heavy HPC resources. The advent of latest technologies in HPC systems have changed the way the climate research field has developed and there is always a never-ending need for sound infrastructure to meet with the herculean tasks of modelling and project deadlines. The talk will highlight certain issues on the use of such HPC systems looking at their merits and limitations and cite some case studies of benchmarked exercises using different HPC platforms.
