Short summary
Three practical meteorological applications with different characteristics highlight the core computer science aspects and applicability of distributed computing to meteorology. Presenting cloud and grid computing this paper shows use case scenarios fitting a wide range of meteorological applications from operational to research studies. The paper concludes that distributed computing complements and extends existing high performance computing concepts.
