Climate in a Box

Recent advances in computer technology and software design make it possible to run massive climate simulations on desktop sized machines. This is a paradigm shift from the need for room sized supercomputers to do important work in climate modelling. In a new initiative, NASA plans to facilitate the wider distribution of desktop sized supercomputers, aimed at democratizing climate research among scientists who might otherwise have been more resource contrained. Included in this video are modelling output runs using GEOS-5 and WRF.
