Short summary
The study in the paper is utilizing and maximizing high-performance computing (HPC) power resources to support the study on extreme weather impact due to climate change, which for the first time allows modellers to simulate the entire system, ranging from the global circulation to a target catchment for impact study on a single platform, where both NWP and the hydrological model are executed so that more effective interaction and communication can be achieved and maintained between the model.
