[MITgcm-support] parallel computing with mitgcm

Hi all,

I'm a total novice and I'm trying to understand the parallelism 
primitives supported in mitgcm. Can anyone explain to me why is it 
necessary to provide the number of parallel processors in advance? Or to 
quote from online documentation: "The numeric value /of number of 
processors np /must be equal to the product of the processor grid 
settings of /nPx/ and /nPy/ in the file /SIZE.h"

Is there a version of mitgcm that supports runs on a grid/cloud-like 
environment, where experiments are divided into multiple jobs, which can 
be queued and executed once resources become available?
