Catching Carbon with Computer Simulations

September 30, 2010

Fossil fuel burning power plants currently produce about 40 percent of all human generated carbon dioxide (CO2) gas in the United States. Because CO2 keeps Earth's heat from dissipating into space, experts believe that its increased presence in the atmosphere is directly causing global temperatures to rapidly rise. Read More »

Berkeley Lab Researchers Receive $6.3 Million to Tackle Supercomputing Challenges

September 30, 2010

Leading-edge supercomputing systems play a vital role for pushing the boundaries of scientific discovery, from predicting trends in global climate to understanding how supernovae detonate. Although today's fastest systems perform at the "petascale," executing about a quadrillion calculations per second, even this is not fast enough to meet the needs of future mission critical Department of Energy applications in climate and energy-security. Over the last two years, the nation's leading… Read More »

Michael Wehner Joins Congressional Briefing on Extreme Weather in a Warming World

September 27, 2010

Michael Wehner, a member of the Scientific Computing Group in Berkeley Lab's Computational Research Division, who researches extreme weather conditions resulting from global climate change, was one of four panelists providing input during a Congressional briefing on “Extreme Weather in a Warming World.” The Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, chaired by Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) held the briefing on Thursday, Sept. 23, in the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C. The most prominent speaker was Husain Haqqani, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States, who discussed the historic floods that have displaced millions of his countrymen. Read More »
