NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

Catching Extreme Waves

Using decades of global climate data generated at a spatial resolution of about 25 kilometers squared, researchers were able to capture the formation of tropical cyclones, also referred to as hurricanes and typhoons, and the extreme waves that they generate. » Read More
