Berkeley Algorithms Help Researchers Understand Dark Energy

November 24, 2014 Tags: CRD, NERSC

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 Tags: CRD, NERSC

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 »

A Comprehensive Look at High Performance Parallel I/O

October 31, 2014

In this era of “big data,” high performance parallel I/O is extremely important. Yet, the last book to summarize best practices in this area was written more than 10 years ago. To fill the void, Berkeley Lab's Prabhat and HDF Group's Quincey Koziol brought together leading practitioners, researchers, software architects, developers and scientists to contribute their insights for a new book called “High Performance Parallel I/O.” Read More »
