PNNL Simulations Point to Accelerating Climate Change

“An analysis of changes to the climate that occur over several decades suggests that these changes are happening faster than historical levels and are starting to speed up. The Earth is now entering a period of changing climate that will likely be faster than what’s occurred naturally over the last thousand years, according to a new paper in Nature Climate Change, committing people to live through and adapt to a warming world.”

Interview: Advancing Computational Chemistry with NWChem

“The notion of High Performance Computing is evolving over time. So what was deemed a leadership class computer five years ago is a little bit obsolete. We are talking about the evolution not only in the hardware but also in the programming models because there are more and more cores available. Orchestrating the calculations in the way that can effectively take advantage of parallelism takes a lot of thinking and a lot of redesign of the algorithms behind the calculations.”
