Tropical Cyclones (TCs) rate as the primary natural disaster in the context of causing death, destruction and economic loss. The impact of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans and Sandy on New York testify to their destructive capacity: they have caused combined damage reaching close to $200 billions and consequences of these storms, particularly Katrina, can still be felt to...

Además de la necesidad de ejecutar grandes simulaciones numéricas, el crecimiento exponencial de la cantidad de datos disponibles aporta al método científico un nuevo
paradigma basado en su análisis masivo; "Big Data" se refiere al conjunto de retos tecnológicos asociados con la obtención, gestión, análisis y...

One of the biggest single risks to the operation of the energy network is the meteorology. Both the supply and demand of electricity are strongly influenced by the weather and its modulation over time, the climate variability. The highest priority for the energy network operators is to maintain a balanced system to avoid black-outs. The rapidly evolving energy...

El Barcelona Supercomputing Center-Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS) fue distinguido en 2011 con la acreditación Centro de Excelencia Severo Ochoa (SEV-2011-0067) con la...

The ECOMS2 Action will coordinate and support Europe´s knowledge base to enable better management of climate-related risks and opportunities thereby creating greater social and economic value. ECOMS2 has four main objectives:

1. Develop a European framework for Earth-system modelling and climate service activities. The framework will be built...

This project aims to apply the new exascale HPC techniques to energy industry simulations, customizing them, and going beyond the state-of-the art in the required HPC exascale simulations for different energy sources: wind energy production and design, efficient combustion systems forbiomass-derived fuels (biogas), and exploration geophysics for hydrocarbon reservoirs. For...

Genomics is probably the fastest evolving field in current science. A decade ago our main concern was to obtain the sequence (the 1D code) of the genome; but today the big challenges are to determine how genotype information is transferred into phenotype, and how pathological phenotypic changes can be predicted from genome alterations. While investigating these points, we...

Life Science research has become increasingly digital, and this development is accelerating rapidly. Biomolecular modelling techniques such as homology modelling, docking, and molecular simulation have advanced tremendouslydue to world-leading European research, resulting in extreme demands for better computational performance and throughput as these tools are used in applied...

The goal of PRIMAVERA is to deliver novel, advanced and well-evaluated high-resolution global climate models (GCMs), capable of simulating and predicting regional climate with unprecedented fidelity, out to 2050. This capability will deliver innovative climate science and a new generation of advanced Earth System Models. Sector-specific end-users in policy and business will...

Essentially every new commercial product, be they smart phones, solar cells, batteries, transport technology, artificial hips, etc., depends on improved or even novel materials. Computational materials science is increasingly influential as a method to identify such critical materials for both R&D. Enormous amounts of data, precious but heterogeneous and difficult to...
