Climate Workshop Will Explore Data-Intensive Research Methods

Oct 31, 2011 |

One of the most promising use cases for “Big Data” is to help advance climate research. At SC11, Reinhard Budich (Max Planck Institute for Meteorology), John Feo (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory) Tobias Weigel (DKRZ) and Per Nyberg (Cray) will co-host the second Climate Knowledge Discovery (CKD) workshop to explore new data-intensive methods. HPCwire talked about this with Budich and Feo.
