ACME team wins best video at Supercomputing 2015!

Dec 03, 2015

Congratulations to the Climate Ocean Sea-Ice Modeling team at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and their colleagues at the University of Texas-Austin for winning the best video at the "Best Scientific Visualization & Data Analytics Showcase" at Supercomputing 2015. The video, "Visualization of Ocean Currents and Eddies in a High-Resolution Global Ocean-Climate Model" is narrated by Mark Petersen, a research scientist at LANL.  The video uses state-of-the-art visualization techniques to explore the physical processes in the ocean relevant to climate change. The data is generated from the Model for Prediction Across Scales-Ocean (MPS-Ocean) which is designed to investigate climate change at global high-resolution (5 to 10 km gridcells) using high performance computing platforms. This project is part of the Accelerated Climate Modeling for Energy (ACME) project funded by the Department of Energy’s Office of Biological and Environmental Research.
