A lot of advanced simulation studies are being conducted by high performance supercomputers such as K computer, Earth Simulator in various fields including meteorology. The high performance supercomputers enables us to conduct numerical simulations and data assimilation of observation big-data (huge high-density and high-frequency data) with an order of magnitude higher resolutions and ensemble numbers than those with previous supercomputers. In addition, the post-K computer will be available as a successor of K, and studies for the post-K computer was started. At the Atmospheric Science session co-organized by the Meteorological Society of Japan, we comprehensively pick up this topic in the Atmospheric and Hydrospheric Sciences Session of this 2018 Union Meeting that enables to comprise the atmospheric, oceanic and land sciences. This session aims to promote recent studies related to the issues on high performance computing in weather, climate, and environmental studies using the K computer and other supercomputers, and to enhance discussions on future directions of numerical simulations in meteorology.
