Journal Features Climate Modeling Articles by CRD’s Chris Ding, Helen He

November 1, 2005

The International Journal of High Performance Computing Applications (IJHPCA) has dedicated its Fall 2005 issue to climate modeling, especially on the software design of the Community Climate System Model

Helen He

(CCSM). Among the contributing authors are CRD's Helen He and Chris Ding, who wrote an article on “Coupling Multicomponent Models with MPH on Distributed Memory Computer Architectures” and contributed to another on “CPL6: The New Extensible, High Performance Parallel Coupler for the Community Climate System Model.” The special issue of the journal can be found at <http://hpc.sagepub.com/content/vol19/issue3/>.

Many of the authors are currently collaborating on a SciDAC climate project about Collaborative Design and Development of CCSM. This is a multi-institutional effort involving the National Center for Atmospheric Research, NASA and Argonne, Berkeley, Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore, Oak Ridge and Pacific Northwest national labs. The goal of the project is to provide U.S. researchers with state-of-the-art coupled climate simulation capabilities. CCSM modeling results are part of the U.S.’ submission to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fourth Assesment Report (IPCC AR4).

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab

The Computing Sciences Area at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing Department of Energy Office of Science research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials, and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world, and our universe.

Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 13 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’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 energy.gov/science.
