Tropical Cyclones (TCs) rate as the primary natural disaster in the context of causing death, destruction and economic loss. The impact of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans and Sandy on New York testify to their destructive capacity: they have caused combined damage reaching close to $200 billions and consequences of these storms, particularly Katrina, can still be felt to...

This project aims to apply the new exascale HPC techniques to energy industry simulations, customizing them, and going beyond the state-of-the art in the required HPC exascale simulations for different energy sources: wind energy production and design, efficient combustion systems forbiomass-derived fuels (biogas), and exploration geophysics for hydrocarbon reservoirs. For...

Life Science research has become increasingly digital, and this development is accelerating rapidly. Biomolecular modelling techniques such as homology modelling, docking, and molecular simulation have advanced tremendouslydue to world-leading European research, resulting in extreme demands for better computational performance and throughput as these tools are used in applied...

Genomics is probably the fastest evolving field in current science. A decade ago our main concern was to obtain the sequence (the 1D code) of the genome; but today the big challenges are to determine how genotype information is transferred into phenotype, and how pathological phenotypic changes can be predicted from genome alterations. While investigating these points, we...

The goal of PRIMAVERA is to deliver novel, advanced and well-evaluated high-resolution global climate models (GCMs), capable of simulating and predicting regional climate with unprecedented fidelity, out to 2050. This capability will deliver innovative climate science and a new generation of advanced Earth System Models. Sector-specific end-users in policy and business will...

Essentially every new commercial product, be they smart phones, solar cells, batteries, transport technology, artificial hips, etc., depends on improved or even novel materials. Computational materials science is increasingly influential as a method to identify such critical materials for both R&D. Enormous amounts of data, precious but heterogeneous and difficult to...

The main target of the Mont-Blanc 3 project "European Scalable and power efficient HPC platform based on low-power embedded technology" is the creation of a new high-end HPC platform (SoC and node) that is able to deliver a new level of performance / energy ratio whilst executing real applications.

The technical objectives are:

Materials are crucial for scientific and technological advances, industrial competitiveness and for tackling key societal challenges - from energy and environment to health care, information and communications, manufacturing, safety and transportation. The current accuracy and predictive power of materials' simulations allows a paradigm shift for computational design and...

ESiWACE will substantially improve efficiency and productivity of numerical weather and climate simulation on high-performance computing platforms by supporting the end-to-end workflow of global Earth system modelling in HPC environment. This will be obtained by improving and supporting the: (1) scalability of models, tools and data management on state-of-the-art...

This project aims at exploring the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) influence on the tropical North Atlantic (TNA) sea surface temperature (SST). The SST variability in the TNA region has been observed to affect weather and climate in surrounding areas, including European heatwaves, tropical Atlantic hurricane activity, the West African monsoon, and rainfall over...
