This is the second part of the posting on the SC10 Report on Climate Thrust Area by Will Sawyer. Community Climate Model Development In a masterworks talk, Ricky Rood (professor at Univ. of Michigan) insisted climate projections offer an historic opportunity: for the first time we have a glimpse into the future and can potentially […]
The short series of reports from the SC11 conference closes with two posting from our colleague Will Sawyer (CSCS) on the Climate Thrust Area. The climate thrust area had a significant presence at the conference. The basic program consisted of one plenary talk, four masterworks presentations, one BoF session, two panels and a number of […]
