NASA’s super computing was one of the stars of SC13, the international supercomputing conference held this year in Denver, and we liked this shot the best; it’s a full-world model of surface and upper winds spat out by the GEOS-5 system run by the Discover supercomputer, which is capable of far more detailed resolution than even this 10km detail. ¬†Surface winds are white, upper levels are colored by speed, and this is something of a dry run for the 2-year “Nature Run” simulation, which will model Earth’s atmosphere with accuracy never before possible. ¬†Image courtesy of Bill Butman/NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, with a shout-out to Giz for the news.
