IFS, MC2, MM5, and LM/GME (A more detailed description of each code is provided in Appendix I). Each code has a best microprocessor and vector performance achieved for both serial and parallel execution. We then compare them using the ratio of the sustained performance per processor between vector and microprocessor machines for both serial and parallel execution. The implications of the different performance characteristics will be explored in the following sections.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
