Addressing Climate Change Uncertainties with Petascale Computing

Donald J. Wuebbles, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

“This collaborative research between the University of Illinois, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, and the University of Maryland is aimed at using the Blue Waters petascale resources to address key uncertainties associated with the numerical modeling of the Earth’s climate system and the ability to accurately analyze past and projected future changes in climate.”

“We will describe recent progress and successes obtained in predicting properties of matter by quantum simulations, and discuss algorithmic challenges in connection with the use of evolving high-performance computing architectures. We will also discuss open issues related to the validation of the approximate, first principles theories used in large-scale quantum simulations.”

Video: Petascale Supercomputing for Space-Based Earth Science

Reed Patrick

“We have made substantial progress towards three transformative contributions: (1) we are the first team to formally link high-resolution astrodynamics design and coordination of space assets with their Earth science impacts within a Petascale “many-objective” global optimization framework, (2) we have successfully completed the largest Monte Carlo simulation experiment for evaluating the required satellite frequencies and coverage to maintain acceptable global forecasts of terrestrial hydrology (especially in poorer countries), and (3) we have evaluated the limitations and vulnerabilities of the full suite of current satellite precipitation missions including the recently approved Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission. This work illustrates the tradeoffs and consequences of a collapse in the current portfolio of rainfall missions.

Interview: Trends in HPC & Cloud in Financial Services

juho

While not every industry is making the move to the Cloud at quite the same rate, the high performance side of the Financial Services industry seems to be ahead of the curve. This year, the ISC 2015 conference will feature a session on HPC & Cloud Computing in Financial Services. To learn more about the latest trends in this area, we caught up with Prof. Juho Kanniainen from Tampere University of Technology and Tuomas Eerola from Techila Technologies.
