Modeling atmospheric flow is one application of supercomputers. In this paper we present some concepts for implementing global flow algorithms on shared memory multiprocessors. We describe how an analysis of the algorithms combined with the appropriate parallel programming language support allows an efficient and computationally correct implementation, which minimizes the synchronization difficulties. Some performance measurements on the Encore multiprocessor serve to support this assertion.
