ATMOL: A Domain-Specific Language for Atmospheric Modeling

Robert A. van Engelen


This paper describes the design and implementation of ATMOL: a domain-specific language for the formulation and implementation of atmospheric models. ATMOL was developed in close collaboration with meteorologists at the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) to ensure ease of use, concise notation, and the adoptation of common notational conventions. ATMOL’s expressiveness allows the formulation of high-level and low-level model details as language constructs for problem refinement and code synthesis. The atmospheric models specified in ATMOL are translated into efficient numerical codes with CTADEL, a tool for symbolic manipulation and code synthesis.
