In climate research, big and complex networks could be generated by the big climate data produced by high resolution climate models, and also observations. To analyze such complex networks, there are two main computational challenges concerning both the construction and the analysis of these complex networks:
‣ the construction of the network, as such, the size of the on-chip physical memory of single processor computing machines might limit the possibility to efficiently construct such big networks.
‣ computational time needed to analyze complex networks stands to be another real challenge. High-performance software tools are needed to process both steps (construction and analysis) efficient.
A description of the parallel software package which had been developed in
LINC project is presented here.
