Short summary
In nature, the many processes that make up the Earth system take place simultaneously, for instance the condensation of water vapour into clouds, and the blocking of sunlight by those clouds. In computer simulations, these often take place in sequence. We demonstrate how to make these processes also execute in parallel in computer simulations. This should prove a large benefit in the new era of computing, where arithmetic does not get faster, but we can perform more of it in parallel.
