KAUST Tackles Extreme Event Prediction

Oct 8, 2014 |

Five years ago, shortly after the founding of King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Thuwal, Saudi Arabia, on the cost of the Red Sea, over 140 millimeters of rain fell over the region in just eight hours, causing over 100 fatalities and $100 million in damages. Flash flooding is most problematic in dry Read more…

Preparing for Solar Storms

Aug 26, 2013 |

It may not be possible to prevent devastating space-weather events like solar storms from reaching the earth’s surface, but with enough warning, we can prepare for them. Scientists believe that mapping the earth’s magnetosphere – the magnetic shield that stops most but not all of these storms – is the first step.

Dust Storms Put GPU CPU Performance to the Test

Jun 6, 2013 |

A team of researchers modeling environmental events looked to the relative efficiencies of using GPU and CPU approaches for their processing and rendering. While CPUs were needed due to limited on-board GPU memory….
