Proving the Case for Climate Change with Hi-Res Models

Aug 2, 2012 |

<img style=”float: left;” src=”http://media2.hpcwire.com/hpcwire/Hot_Earth_small.jpg” alt=”” width=”98″ height=”98″ />Although serious scientists believe we’re past the point of debating the validity of climate change, the computer models that support this research are not perfect. Fortunately, the latest improvements to high-resolution climate simulations are not only improving the fidelity of the models, but are also deepening our understanding of climate dynamics, both qualitatively and quantitatively.

NSF’s Seidel: ‘Software is the Modern Language of Science’

Aug 9, 2011 |

Edward Seidel, the former director of the NSF’s Office of Cyberinfrastructure, told attendees at TeraGrid ’11 that after more than four centuries of science being conducted at a painstakingly slow pace, today’s communications technologies and scientific advances are forcing a dramatic change — and acceleration — in all areas of science. At the heart of this change will be software.

Enabling Research with MATLAB on the TeraGrid

Oct 18, 2010 |

Last year Cornell University and Purdue University received funding from the National Science Foundation to undertake their MATLAB on the TeraGrid project. Since its inception a number of researchers have been making use of the resource and Cornell’s Center for Advanced Computing is demonstrating that the resource might have a permanent place in the TeraGrid resource provider collection in the future.

TeraGrid 2010 Conference Campus Champion Program

Aug 18, 2010 |

Fifty-one Campus Champions attended TeraGrid’s fifth annual conference in Pittsburgh, Pa., recently. Accounting for about 15 percent of attendees, the champions bring a wealth of experience to the program, including knowledge of TeraGrid systems and services, their local campus resources, and other cyberinfrastructures such as the Open Science Grid. This is our fifth and final in a series covering the TeraGrid conference.

Aug 16, 2010 |

At this year’s TeraGrid conference, Bob Wilhelmson, recently retired chief science officer of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and former applications lead for the Blue Waters project, delivered a keynote address in which he discussed the Blue Waters architecture and shared several planned projects for the new supercomputer. This is our fourth in a series covering the TeraGrid conference.

TeraGrid 2010 Keynote: The Essential Role Cyberinfrastructure Plays in the Geosciences

Aug 12, 2010 |

Dr. Tim Killeen, representing the National Science Foundation, last week addressed the annual TeraGrid ’10 conference in Pittsburgh, Pa. His keynote emphasized the urgent need for sustainable cyberinfrastructure in the geosciences and across all domains of science. This is our third in a series covering the TeraGrid conference.
