When approximately 24,000 attendees convene in San Francisco for the 2016 American Geophysical Union’s Fall Meeting, staff from NERSC and the Computational Research Division will be among them, giving invited talks, presenting papers and showing posters. Now in its 49th year, the Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. The meeting will be held Dec. 12-16 in the Moscone Center.

With more than 1,700 sessions, the meeting offers a mix of more than 20,000 oral and poster presentations, a broad range of keynote lectures, and various formal and informal networking opportunities. Here’s a list of activities Computing Sciences staff will be participating in:

Press Conference

A report on “Explaining Extreme Events of 2015 from a Climate Perspective,” to be published as a special supplement of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS), will be released at a press conference at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 15, at the meeting. The report will include two papers co-authored by CRD staff:

  • “The Deadly Combination of Heat and Humidity in India and Pakistan in Summer 2015,” co-authors include Michael Wehner, Dáithí Stone and Hari Krishnan.
  • “The Late Onset of the 2015 Wet Season in Nigeria,” co-authors include Michael Wehner and Dáithí Stone.

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab

The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) Computing Sciences organization provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing the Department of Energy's research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world and our universe.

ESnet, the Energy Sciences Network, provides the high-bandwidth, reliable connections that link scientists at 40 DOE research sites to each other and to experimental facilities and supercomputing centers around the country. The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) powers the discoveries of 6,000 scientists at national laboratories and universities, including those at Berkeley Lab's Computational Research Division (CRD). CRD conducts research and development in mathematical modeling and simulation, algorithm design, data storage, management and analysis, computer system architecture and high-performance software implementation. NERSC and ESnet are DOE Office of Science User Facilities.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory addresses the world's most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the universe. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab's scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages Berkeley Lab for the DOE’s Office of Science.

DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit science.energy.gov.
