|NOAA, Navy Partnering to Create Faster, Lower-Cost Climate Models|
Tuesday, February 11, 2014
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Navy are teaming up with scientists from the public, private, and academic sectors to design the next generation of models for predicting weather, ocean conditions, and regional climate change.
Four teams of scientists are beginning projects this month to develop faster, better integrated models. These models will take advantage of new supercomputers that use more energy efficient (lower-cost) processors, such as those originally developed for the video gaming industry.
