Weather, Climate, and Environmental Forecasting

Scientists endeavoring to understand and predict the Earth's weather and climate rely on increasingly complex computer models combined with a rapidly expanding database of current and historical observations from around the world. Continued refinements of forecasts and climate models require ever-greater numbers of observations, resulting in huge output files and consuming massive compute and storage resources. SGI solutions for weather enable researchers to:

  • More accurately predict weather at local, regional and global levels
  • Manage operational data flows and archival requirements
  • Run larger, more complex environmental simulations in less time

SGI® UV systems are uniquely suited for the simulation of weather and climate patterns. With the large memory capability of the SGI UV, more detailed simulations can be performed with more science as part of the calculations. New and improved physics and science can be modeled with the system's advanced memory capacity and large core counts.
