In this paper, application of high performance computing to climate modelling with specific reference to global General Circulation Models (GCM) is discussed. Methods of parallelization of global atmospheric models based on their numerical schemes is presented. It is seen that there is an interesting co-evolution of computer architecture and the type of numerical schemes used in general circulation models. A detailed survey of the Indian HPC scenario for meteorological computing is presented. Innovative and pioneering aspects of Indian efforts are highlighted.
