Video: Big Data Powers Climate Research at BSC


In this video from the Barcelona Supercomputer Center, Big Data is presented as a key challenge for researchers studying global climate change. “Changes in the composition of the atmosphere can affect the habitability of the planet by modifying the air quality and altering long-term climate. Research in this area is devoted to the development, implementation and refinement of global and regional state-of-the-art models for short-term air quality forecasting and long-term climate predictions.”

NASA Charts Sea Level Rise

NASA visualization shows shifts in the Gulf Stream (in Blue). Yellow shows drops in Sea Levels while Orange shows increases.

“Sea level rise is one of the most visible signatures of our changing climate, and rising seas have profound impacts on our nation, our economy and all of humanity,” said Michael Freilich, director of NASA’s Earth Science Division. “By combining space-borne direct measurements of sea level with a host of other measurements from satellites and sensors in the oceans themselves, NASA scientists are not only tracking changes in ocean heights but are also determining the reasons for those changes.”

Video: Climate Change – Fact, Fiction, and What You Can Do

Doug Sisterson, Argonne

“Climate change – or as Doug Sisterson, research meteorologist at Argonne National Laboratory, prefers to call it, climate disruption – is probably the greatest challenge we face in modern society, yet many of us don’t fully understand the causes or the consequences. Washington Governor Jay Inslee famously stated: “We’re the first generation to feel the impact of climate change and the last generation that can do something about it.”

HPC Transforms for Researchers of Global Climate Change


“HPC is transforming our everyday lives, as well as our not-so-ordinary ones. From nanomaterials to jet aircrafts, from medical treatments to disaster preparedness, and even the way we wash our clothes; the HPC community has transformed the world in multifaceted ways.”

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.”

Remarkable NASA Simulations Show C02 Migration


NASA Goddard has posted some remarkable simulations that offer a stunning new look at how carbon dioxide in the atmosphere travels around the globe.

Supercomputing Reveals Arctic Cyclones are more Common than Previously Thought

Researchers are HPC resources at the Ohio Supercomputer Center to better understand current weather patterns and potential climate change in the future.
