Climate Change Research Gets Its Own Supercomputer

Some of the world's most powerful supercomputers have been working on climate change research and visit our site viagra brand name solutions, but their time is split among many of the globe's major issues.  That is changing now that one supercomputer is dedicated solely to running algorithms and calculations in the name of climate change.

Computer-maker Cray has just been awarded $47 million from the DOE to build supercomputers that will be used by the buy levitra on-line National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.  The first computer will be a Cray model XT6 called the Climate Modeling and Research System and will be in the lab's hands by the end of the year.

Cray will supply the lab with another, more powerful computer in 2011 called "Baker" and more high-performance computing gear in 2012.  With the budget assigned to this project, the computers will easily have a speed of a petraflop or greater.

These devices consume large amounts of electricity. Unless these new devices are proven to be powered using green power then they are part of wow look it order cialis online canada the problem and not part of the solution.

It is up to the citizenry to ensure that these computers are powered with renewable energy.

Climate change is a global problem, and yet each one of us has the power to make a difference. Even small changes in our daily behaviour can help prevent greenhouse gas emissions without affecting our quality of life. In fact, they can help save us money!

Super computer power is measured in Petras. A single Petra is we use it buy cheap generic cialis approximately equal to 100,000 Intel microprocessors. Until now, supercomputer designers have only been able to reach sub Petra speeds reliably.

I believe that Petra is the online pharmacies name of the scientist who discovered the memory chip.

It's a petaflop: 1 quadrillion floating point calculations per second.

Petaflop. Petraflop is a typo. 1 quadrillion calculations per second.
This computer is not the solution

I agree with Jak, what good will it do to viagra from canada have this super powerful computer if it is using massive amounts of energy?

How is a supercomputer going to undo peoples' lazy/bad habits?

The environmental problem that we as a planet face is not a pinata. We really need to understand it to make a viable change. I mean really, if you just want to act blindly then maybe releasing tons of refrigerant into the atmosphere will cool off the globe! If you don't think before you act you are almost guaranteed to make the problem worse. You are foolish, Samantha as is Jak, if you think that swinging blindly in the dark at our problem is try it levitra pfizer online better than getting a clear picture of what we need to do and low price cialis where and how much etc...

The supercomputer for climate change "is dedicated solely to running algorithms" gore rhythms, get it? =)
