Whether you’re involved in the high performance computing or not, almost every one of your days is likely planned around the findings of HPC-enabled advanced modeling and simulations for weather forecasting that tell us whether to carry an umbrella, wear extra sunscreen, or if the roads will be safe to drive on. But as more Read more…
Sometimes lifetime careers are spun from childhood events. Such was the case for Leigh Orf, Professor of Atmospheric Science at Central Michigan University, who lived through one of the worst tornadoes in recorded history. As Orf details in a recent blog, the supercell thunderstorm that hit New England on Oct. 3, 1979, spawned the deadly tornado that ran Read more…
Weather forecasting has come a long way since June of 1977, when the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) first contracted Cray to deliver one of its early Cray-1A systems across the pond. This was the first time a Cray found its way to the old country—an installation that set the stage for Read more…
IBM supercomputing model aims to weatherproof businesses and governments.
Hyperlocal forecasting enabled by improvements to global climate model.
One might think that cloud would be a perfect fit for the weather, but for some organizations, the tie is only as strong as the terms themselves imply. Weather forecasting involves massive datasets and requires more than the 10GbE provided by Amazon’s new HPC instance type.
New Zealand super will be devoted to weather forecasting and bioscience.
Ohio Supercomputer Center resources used to increase understanding of plaque formation in Alzheimer’s disease; and Cray XT6 system selected for climate research in Brazil. We recap those stories and more in our weekly wrapup.
Cray wins NNSA supercomputing contract; and Tokyo Tech researchers make breakthroughs in weather forecasting using GPU computing. We recap those stories and more in our weekly wrapup.
