In nature, the many processes that make up the Earth system take place
simultaneously, for instance the condensation of water vapour into
clouds, and the blocking of sunlight by those clouds. In computer
simulations, these often take place in sequence. We demonstrate how to
make these processes also execute in parallel in computer simulations.
This should prove a large benefit in the new era of computing, where
arithmetic does not get faster, but we can perform more of it in parallel.
