    Berkeley Algorithms Help Researchers Understand Dark Energy

    November 24, 2014: The process of identifying and tracking Type Ia supernovae requires scientists to scrupulously monitor the night sky for slight changes, a task that would be extremely tedious and time-consuming for the Dark Energy Survey (DES) without some novel computational tools developed at NERSC by researchers at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley.

    Supercomputers Fuel Global High-Resolution Climate Models

    November 12, 2014: Not long ago, it would have taken several years to run a high-resolution simulation on a global climate model. But using supercomputing resources at NERSC, climate scientist Michael Wehner of Berkeley Lab's Computational Research Division was able to complete a run in just three months. Read More »
