Short summary
Accurate climate modeling of coupled Earth systems requires mapping of solution field data between dependent components that use non-matching discrete meshes. While existing workflows provide a pathway to generate the projection weights as an offline step, severe bottlenecks impede flexible setup of high-resolution models. In this paper, we present new algorithmic approaches to simplify the E3SM computational workflow using a scalable software infrastructure to generate the remapping operators.
