==== Description: ====
Srend uses ray casting on ordinary CPU cores to render Cartesian grid data to
imagery.  Srend compiles to a library which is linked within an application. 
Computational fluid dynamics codes for weather, 
astrophysical, and multiphysics time-evolving simulations are the original
application targets, but any Cartesian grid data is suitable.

Srend is written in standard Fortran.  Srend can be used within Fortran,
C/C++, and Python applications.

Scalability is a core feature, from serial laptop codes to 
applications exploiting the largest academic clusters.  Paralellism is
available through standard MPI, Openmp, and CPU vectorization methods using
GNU/Linux compilers and MPI libraries.

Portability is another key feature.  Srend has no hardware or software
dependencies.  Vectorization is enabled through high level compiler
directives, and Srend code exploits capabilities of 512-bit vector processing
units (VPUs).  Srend will exploit narrower VPUs as determined by the compiler
during build.

==== Other Software Required: ====
There are no dependencies beyond standard Fortran & C compilers, and standard
MPI+Openmp libraries.
