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.
