Nov 25, 2014 |

In keeping with the SC spirit of HPC matters, we wanted to share another amazing example of supercomputing in action. Last week, NASA officials released the first ever ultra-high-resolution computer model of global atmospheric carbon dioxide. The simulation, which can be seen below, depicts the puffs and swirls of carbon dioxide as it circumnavigates the globe. While we wrote about Read more…
