The deposition of dust and other terrestrial aerosols represents an external supply of nutrients to the ocean surface. This supply helps sustain...

Plastics are one of the most widely used materials, with a wide variety of applications across all sectors of the economy. Its production is estimated to be around 360 million tonnes, and thus synthetic polymer is poorly biodegradable. Plastic life cycle is responsible for greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to climate change, plastic waste has been found in every...

After decades of development and a Nobel prize, Molecular Dynamics (MD) has reached maturity. It is no longer an exotic technique used by a small group of theoreticians but rather a method extensively used by a very large community of users. Millions of supercomputer hours are devoted to collecting trajectories, thus producing a deluge of simulation data that the community is...

Cold air outbreaks are typical of the mid-latitude climate during the cold season. Their relevance relies on the threat to life caused by the long-lasting periods with abnormally low temperatures, the potential of damage to crops, and the occurrence of high-impact weather events such as heavy snow and low visibility during blizzards.

Understanding, predicting, and discovering the properties and performance of materials is key to delivering the technologies that power our economy and allow for the sustainable development of our society. For this reason, materials simulations have become one ofthe most intensive and fast growing domains for high-performance computing worldwide, with a recognized European...


ChEESE-2P is the second phase of a successful research project that was coordinated by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center until 2022. It aims to address the multiple challenges posed by geohazards and accurate predictions with the help of exascale computers. The project primarily addresses European institutions responsible for operational monitoring networks but also at hardware...

EDITO-Model Lab will prepare the next generation of ocean models, complementary to Copernicus Marine Service to be integrated into the EU public infrastructure of the European Digital Twin Ocean (EDITO) that will ensure access to required input and validation data (from EMODnet, EuroGOOS, ECMWF, Copernicus Services and Sentinels satellite observations) and to high-performance...

In Astrophysics and Cosmology (A&C) today, High Performance Computing (HPC)-based numerical simulations are outstandinginstruments for scientific discovery. They represent essential tools and theoretical laboratories able to investigate, interpret and understand the physical processes behind the observed sky. For these laboratories, the efficient and effective...

This proposal shapes the next (third) phase of the ESiWACE Centre of Excellence. As the ability to run Earth system models at ~1km resolution efficiently on EuroHPC supercomputers has already been established in previous phases for specific model configurations, and as developments are now picked up by science-driven projects, this proposal will focus on the support of the...
