More complex climate models make great demands on a well-functioning computer environment. In a newly established EU project, SMHI is developing and simplifying collaboration between researchers by building up the infrastructure and support services for climate research.
The climate models used to make calculations of the future climate are becoming increasingly advanced. They have higher resolution and contain more and more details and processes. This means that they require access to ever-larger supercomputers and better infrastructure to work.
"Advanced models make it difficult for researchers to process all the data unless there is an infrastructure to facilitate this. In this project we deal with many daily problems for climate researchers," says Uwe Fladrich, scientific coordinator for SMHI participation in the project. >> More
