A team of researchers ran transient, or continuous, simulations on an ORNL supercomputer over three years to create the first physics-based test of hemispheric deglaciation, work that was recently featured in Nature.
Researchers led by Gerald Meehl of the National Center for Atmospheric Research used ORNL’s Jaguar supercomputer to explore just how much sea level is likely to rise and under what circumstances.
An OLCF industrial partner was recently named a winner of International Data Corporation’s (IDC) HPC Innovation Excellence Award, announced in Salt Lake City, Utah at the annual supercomputing conference SC12.
ORNL’s James Hack was a member of a 15 person committee that recommended ways to advance climate modeling over the next two years.
HPCwire sat down with Galen Shipman to discuss strategies for coping with the “3 Vs”—variety, velocity, and volume—of the big data that climate science generates.
A multi-institutional team used a global dataset of paleoclimate records and the Jaguar supercomputer at ORNL to find the perform an unprecedented climate simulation. The results, published in the April 5 issue of Nature, analyze 15,000 years of climate history.
Researchers at ORNL are sharing computational resources and expertise to improve the detail and performance of a scientific application code that is the product of one of the world’s largest collaborations of climate researchers.
A research team led by Jon Reisner of Los Alamos National Laboratory is employing the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility’s Jaguar supercomputer to use data from lightning detectors and even wind instruments mounted on planes flown into the eye of a hurricane to improve atmospheric models.
Mike Henderson, CEO of BMI Corporation and Smart Truck, was announced as one of nine winners of the HPC Innovation Excellence Awards, given to organizations achieving an important, quantifiable achievement with the help of high-performance computing.
Through the ASCR Leadership Computing Challenge (ALCC), allocations were awarded to five projects with an emphasis on high-risk, high-impact research related to DOE’s energy mission. They are already providing insight into important efforts such as advancing the clean-energy agenda and understanding the Earth’s climate.
