After an extensive hardware upgrade at the end of last year, the CSCS supercomputer Piz Daint is now the most powerful mainframe computer outside Asia. With a peak performance in excess of 20 petaflops, it will enable pioneering research in Switzerland and Europe. C2SM partners rank under the top users of Piz Daint in the field of weather and climate research.
SGM-C2SM Weather & Climate Communication Media Workshop
The Swiss Society of Meteorology (Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Meteorologie (SGM)) and the Center for Climate Systems Modeling (C2SM) are organising the SGM-C2SM Media and Climate Communication Workshop 2017.
New supercomputers allow convection-resolving climate simulations
ETH scientists perform a Pan-European climate simulation using a computational mesh fine enough to simulate thunderstorms and rain showers.
Two job vacancies as Scientific Software Developers
Together with the Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology MeteoSwiss and the Scalable Parallel Computing Laboratory (SPCL) we are searching for two Scientific Software Developers.
Starkniederschläge besser regional voraussagen
Eine Studie entschlüsselt, weshalb Starkniederschläge nicht überall gleich stark zunehmen. Sie legt damit einen Grundstein für verbesserte regionale Klimavorhersagen.
16th Swiss Climate Summer School "High-resolution climate: observations, models and projections", 3 – 8 September 2017. Registration is closed. More info for participants, speakers, and workshop leaders now available here.
Research projects under the umbrella of C2SM investigate the climate system and its components at various spatio-temporal scales.
