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

Cluster Scale GPGPU with OpenCL

Previous posts about climate modeling and CESM were required as this post is the crème de la crème of CESM from my point of view. Cluster scale GPGPU seems to be very nice, on paper, but as soon as we

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
