This week NERSC announced the winners of its third annual HPC Achievement Awards. The awards recognize NERSC users who have demonstrated an innovative use of HPC resources to solve a scientific problem or whose work has had an exceptional impact on scientific understanding or society.
NERSC has accepted a selection of key DOE science projects into its NERSC Exascale Scientific Applications Program, a collaborative effort in which NERSC will partner with code teams to prepare for the NERSC-8 Cori manycore architecture. NESAP represents an important opportunity for researchers to prepare application codes for the new architecture and to help advance […]
Researchers are using supercomputers at to detect previously unknown channels of slow-moving seismic waves in Earth’s upper mantle. This discovery helps to explain how “hotspot volcanoes”—the kind that give birth to island chains like Hawaii and Tahiti—come to exist.
