The 20th Century Reanalysis Project: A Climate Time-Machine

January 25, 2011

From the hurricane that smashed into New York in 1938 to the impact of the Krakatoa eruption of 1883, the late 19th and 20th centuries are rich with examples of extreme weather. Now an international team of climatologists have created a comprehensive reanalysis of all global weather events from 1871 to the present day, and from the earth's surface to the jet stream level.

NERSC Users Unlock the Secret of a Rechargeable Heat Battery

January 11, 2011

Broadly speaking, there have been two approaches to capturing the sun's energy: photovoltaics, which turn the sunlight into electricity, or solar-thermal systems, which concentrate the sun's heat and use it to boil water to turn a turbine, or use the heat directly for hot water or home heating.

Planck Mission Peels Back Layers of Universe

January 11, 2011

The Planck mission released today a new catalog of data from its initial maps of the entire sky. The catalogue includes everything from thousands of never-before-seen dusty cocoons where stars are forming, to some of the most massive clusters of galaxies. Planck is a European Space Agency mission with significant contributions from NASA. Read More »

New Employee Profile - January 2017

Brandon Krull Brandon Krull, CRD This month, Brandon Krull joins the CRD's Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE) as a Postdoctoral Fellow. He will work on an LDRD-funded project focused on the development and use of time-parallel algorithms in quantum chemistry. The goal of the project is to enable significant speed-ups in the calculation of real-time electronic structure response properties for understanding the dynamical processes in energy-related materials. Though he… Read More »
