Pacific Northwest National Laboratory modelers turn to extreme-scale computing to simulate climate and weather extremes like the ‘Pineapple Express’ that drenched the West Coast this winter.
Project aims to improve ocean modeling.
As climate changes, so must the tools to model it.
Los Alamos researchers have re-partitioned our planetary sphere to focus on regions of particular interest in global climate models.
Graph theory reveals hidden links that could greatly improve scientists’ predictions of hurricane activity.
Supercomputers are speeding new-materials designs that sponge up carbon dioxide and helping assemble systems for large-scale carbon capture.
Warren Washington has wedded computers and climate science for more than 50 years, culminating in the National Medal of Science.
Fractures fuel the breakup of ice sheets and herald the effects of global waming, but climate models find it tough to track the cracks.
Climate modelers are analyzing the past 150 years of weather to compare today’s storms and climate trends to yesteryear’s.
A team hopes to disperse the haze surrounding clouds’ behavior and influence on the atmosphere. The tool: a simulation operating at an exceptionally fine scale.
