5. Summary and Prospect

The application of high performance computing resources in meteorology has achieved initial results, which can be applied to the annual analysis of the investment efficiency of meteorological high performance computing resources in China and provided reference for the construction of next generation high performance computing system. As the basic support of the numerical model, the computing resources tend to be intensified in the business layout and geographical distribution. With the construction and application of computing resources based on the unified data service environment, dynamic resource scheduling and more refined management can be realized through the resource application and management soft environment, improving the computing efficiency of the model and realizing the cooperative development in different places. By gradually perfecting the evaluation index selection and measurement method, the evaluation system will adapt to it, and make the assessment of the application of computing resources more comprehensive, objective and scientific, and the assessment results will be more in line with the actual situation. And the results of the evaluation work will be applied step by step in all phases of the life cycle of high performance computing resources. Standardization, objectivity, normalization of services is the future application of high-performance computing resources evaluation of the development trend [16] . In order to meet the growing demand for meteorological numerical model operational system for the high performance computing application service environment, we provide the application platform of numerical model stable and efficient operation, and carry out the construction work of meteorological high performance computing application service environment. The application requirements of the in-depth analysis plan and design the initial implementation of the construction program, including the unified application of systems and application planning, model software application framework construction and so on. The meteorological numerical model operational and scientific research works are carried out to provide a strong technical support and protection. For the optimization of the measurement method, we will conduct further research in the future.
