> Climate code, especially when coupling between atmosphere and ocean models?

seems like it would require some nontrivial physics, not to mention
realistic input data.  don't most climate codes also depend on huge
multi-dimensional FFT's where the transpose is coded as all-to-all?

here's an alternative: nbody physics.  just put a bunch of particles in some
empty space and see what they do as they interact through gravity.  of
course, gravity is all-to-all, but then again in a nontrivial sense, less 
coupled problems are less interesting...
