Ice-Sheet Simulation Code Matures, Leveraging Computational Science Software and Expertise

Sandia’s Albany/FELIX dynamical core for ice sheet simulations continues to mature rapidly. This code is being developed as both a stand-alone model for scientific investigations and as the land ice component of coupled climate simulations in DOE’s Earth System Model. The land ice component is responsible for simulating the evolution of the Greenland and Antarctic […]

Sandia’s Exascale Computing Effort Expected to Curtail Effects of System Faults

Computing power today is more potent than ever before. Or is it? In many applications, yes, but when it comes to sophisticated, detailed modeling of the Earth’s climate, an analogy of using an abacus to track the national debt may be only a slight exaggeration. “To accurately predict the Earth’s climate over the next 200–300 […]

Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR)

On February 17, 2011, in

ASCR supports world-class, high-performance computing and networking infrastructures as well as supporting fundamental research in mathematical and computational sciences to enable researchers in DOE scientific disciplines to analyze and predict complex phenomena for scientific discovery. ASCR’s programs have helped establish computation as a third pillar of science along with theory and physical experiments. Sandia has […]
