The best of both worlds

comparison between NumPy, Cython and Cython with the OpenCL solver

Sometimes, rejecting unfeasible ideas early enough is a crucial step towards actually solving a problem. In my quest to speed up the ocean modeling framework Veros, I considered the option of restructuring the existing pure Python code in order to

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

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
