Latest Climate Models Predict Thinner Clouds and More Global Warming

Thanks to clouds, latest climate models predict more global warming than their predecessors. Researchers at LLNL in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Leeds and Imperial College London have found that the latest generation of global climate models predict more warming in response to increasing carbon dioxide. “If global warming leads to fewer or thinner clouds, it causes additional warming above and beyond that coming from carbon dioxide alone. In other words, an amplifying feedback to warming occurs.”

Finalists Announced for Gordon Bell Prize in HPC

“High performance computing continues to underwrite the progress of research using computational methods for the analysis and modeling of complex phenomena,” said Vint Cerf and John White, ACM Award Committee co-chairs, in a statement. “This year’s finalists illustrate the key role that high performance computing plays in 21st Century research. The Gordon Bell Award committee has worked diligently to select from many choices, those most deserving of recognition for this year. Like everyone else, we will be eager to learn which of the nominees takes the top prize for 2016.”
