Full speed ahead – Accelerating ocean simulations

Coastal wave propagation Atlantic veros ocean simulation

How will Earth’s climate change in the next century? This is the kind of questions climate researchers ask themselves and the reason they develop global climate models. These are used to simulate conditions over long periods of time and under

CESM – Modeling Earth Future Climate

CESM - High Level Component Diagram

Following the previous post, it is clear why climate modeling is performed using computers. The amount of data and computational needs of climate simulations can be significant, so supercomputers are extensively used to perform the task. In fact, THE strongest

2nd Copenhagen Quiz

It is now time for the 2nd and last quiz from Copenhagen, dedicated to our final project. If you recall our previous post about climate modeling, it introduced some figures of observed climate data. A precise definition of Albedo can

The Butterfly Effect, Chaos and Climate Modeling

Ever wondered what is the connection between the Butterfly effect, Chaos and Supercomputers? One of the the best ways to describe it can be using climate modeling. Geophysics and Climate Modeling Geophysics is a field in exact sciences that tries to
