Abstract The Ctadel programming environment transforms high-level PDE problem specifications into efficient codes for serial, vector, and parallel computer architectures using computing-cost heuristics and architecture-specific symbolic transformations. Ctadel-generated codes for the Hirlam weather forecast system perform comparably with handwritten codes. Many decisions in today’s society are made based on short- and long-term weather forecasts. Because of the major economic impact of such decisions, research and development of numerical weather forecast systems has been ongoing since the beginning of this century. Today numerical weather forecasting, as part of climate modeling, is classified as one of the Grand Challenges in computational science. Simulating atmospheric processes is computationally intensive:
