Titre : The role of computing in climate science
Nom du conférencier : Robert Bishop
Son affiliation : President of the International Center for Earth Simulations Foundation (ICESF)
Laboratoire organisateur : IPSL
Date et heure : 10-06-2010 14h30

Résumé :

Although “High Performance Computing” is currently deployed in several centres for climate research, computing power is not used at sufficient levels to achieve substantial success on a global basis. Given the complexity of the climate problem, a quantum leap in computing capabilities will be necessary to handle next-generation climate models. In this lecture, Robert Bishop will discuss efforts to build an International Centre for Earth simulation (ICES) capable of finding new insights into weather, climate, environment and disaster risk reduction.

Robert Bishop:
is President of the newly formed International Centre for Earth Simulation Foundation. He has over 40 years of global experience in scientific, technical and engineering computing, and the techniques of modelling, simulation and visualization. He has built and managed international operations within Digital Equipment Corporation, Apollo Computer and Silicon Graphics Inc. In 2006, Dr Bishop was awarded the Distinguished Public Service Medal by NASA.
