Short summary
MicroHH (www.microhh.org) is a new and open-source computational fluid dynamics code for the simulation of turbulent flows in the atmosphere. It is made to simulate atmospheric flows up to the finest detail levels at very high resolution. It has been designed from scratch in C++ in order to use a modern design that allows the code to run on more than 10 000 cores, as well as on a graphical processing unit.
