February 25, 2015: Scientists have observed an increase in carbon dioxide’s (CO₂) greenhouse effect at the Earth’s surface for the first time. The researchers, led by scientists from Berkeley Lab, measured atmospheric CO₂’s… Read More »
- Extreme Data Science We develop tools and technologies and provide the critical networking and computer resources that help scientists turn enormous, widely shared, and complex data sets into discoveries.
- Energy Efficient Computing More science per Watt. That's the guiding principle as we rearchitect every aspect of scientific computing—from hardware and software, to algorithms, networking and data center operations.
- Science Engagement Engaging scientists in a holistic, team-based approach—from theory, observations and experiments to simulation and data analysis—is a grand challenge and goal of Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab.
February 20, 2015: The algorithm opens the door for efficient real-time simulations of ultrafast processes and electron dynamics, such as excitation in photovoltaic materials and ultrafast demagnetization following an optical excitation. Read More »
February 19, 2015: Big clouds get bigger while small clouds shrink may seem like a simple concept, but the mechanisms behind how clouds are born, grow and die are surprisingly complex. Using supercomputers at Berkeley Lab’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), researchers found that factors as small as how sizes of raindrops were represented in a computer model made a big difference in the accuracy of the results.
