European forecasters to simulate weather at 1km resolution on supercomputer
Article by Paul Willis
Scientists from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) have been selected to carry out research on climate simulations on the world’s most powerful supercomputer.
The team from the UK-based center were awarded 500,000 node-hours on the Summit supercomputer at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee.
They aim to run a global weather simulation for at least a season, and potentially for an entire year. The supercomputer will be able to provide them with 1km resolution.
