Hurricane Force Supercomputing: Petascale Simulations of Sandy

Nov 14, 2013 |

The devastation incurred by the landfall of Hurricane Sandy on the northeast coast of the United States just over one year ago exemplifies the need for further advances in accuracy and reliability in numerical weather prediction. High resolution numerical weather simulations carried out on hundreds of thousands of processors on the largest supercomputers, Blue Waters in this case, are providing these very insights.
