The new generation unified weather forecasting and climate model ICON (ICOsahedral Non-hydrostatic model) is jointly developed by Max-Planck-Institut für Meteorologie and German National Meteorological Service, the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD). ICON employs triangular and hex-/pentagonal grids arising from iterative subdividing of the edges of the icosahedron (polyhedron with 20 triangular faces) mapped to the globe.
The benchmark package includes source code files, build, run and evaluation scripts. General guidelines for compiling, running, and verifying numerical correctness of the results are provided on Wiki.
Up-to-date instructions can be found in the README.txt file distributed with each benchmark package.
All releases of the ICON benchmark are available for download on the Files tab in the ICON download area. Input data sets can be downloaded from the Cloud Storage hosted at DKRZ. The download area for ICON benchmark is accessible for registered and approved users only. Please, register and contact for approval. After approval you need to sign in to download the benchmark.
