Computational Earth Sciences

The Computational Earth Sciences group advances and communicates the predictive understanding of Earth Systems by developing and applying models, quantitative methods, and computational tools that exploit high performance computing resources.


Biospheric feedback effects in a synchronously coupled model of human and Earth systems

Fossil fuel combustion and land-use change are the two largest contributors to industrial-era increases in atmospheric CO 2 concentration1. Projections of these are thus fundamental inputs for...

Human-induced greening of the northern extratropical land surface

Significant land greening in the northern extratropical latitudes (NEL) has been documented through satellite observations during the past three decades. This enhanced vegetation growth has broad...

Accelerating Time Integration for Climate Modeling Using GPUs

The push towards larger and larger computational platforms has made it possible for climate simulations to resolve climate dynamics across multiple spatial and temporal scales. This direction in...
