Adéu, Barcelona.

The sea through the train window

Well, I’m writing this from back home in Norway after a great summer in Barcelona! This time, I’ve decided not to write so much hard scientific stuff as before. For that, I refer back to my two previous posts one on

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

How To Build Your Very Own Graphics Engine

Disclaimer: This post will not teach you how to build your own graphics engine. It may, however, delight and confuse you. In my previous post (which you can find here) I introduced what radiosity is along with why and how

Breaking the 4th dimensional wall of object tracking

another brick in the wall

My first Monday morning in Copenhagen, Konstantinos and I met the guys working at the Niels Bohr Institute and we had a very delicious breakfast together. Seriously, Danish pastries are so good I can understand why the Danes named them

Bridging the gap between High Performance Computing and Big Data

In today’s blog post, I’ll talk about the successful (yaaaay!) progress of my project with a technical point of view. So if you are into Computer Science, I’m sure you will find this interesting! This post will be structured using

Discovering the secrets of El Niño

El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is a major climate pattern that consists of oscillations of the meteorological parameters in the equatorial Pacific ocean. It happens every 2 to 7 years but it is not periodically stable. What is ENSO? Normal weather

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
