20th Century Reanalysis Project Featured in HPCWire Podcast
March 11, 2014
Long-time NERSC user Dr. Gil Compo and the 20th Century Reanalysis project were featured March 10 in an HPCWire podcast, "Powering the 20th Century Weather Reanalysis Project."
Among other things, Compo and his colleagues at the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration's Earth System Research Laboratory have used NERSC supercomputers to investigate and confirm global land warming and other climate observations over the last 150 years.
>>Listen to the 20-minute podcast, which focuses on the project's high performance computing aspects.
