Model for Prediction Across Scales (MPAS)


In this section of the lab we’ll setup the Model for Prediction Across Scales (MPAS). The MPAS model is a mesoscale numerical weather prediction system designed for both atmospheric research and operational forecasting applications. It is developed and maintained by by National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).

It’s easy to install with the package manager Spack. Please complete the steps in Preparation and Part 1: Create an HPC Cluster before proceeding with MPAS.

To do so we’ve broken it down into the following steps:

  1. Install MPAS with Spack
  2. Download supercell test case
  3. Run the test case
  4. Visualize results
