Supercomputing the Climate

Goddard Space Flight Center is the home of a state-of-the-art supercomputing facility called the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) that is capable of running highly complex models to help scientists better understand Earth's climate.

This short video introduces the NCCS and takes you behind-the-scenes into the fascinating field of climate modeling.  Using supercomputers to process data from satellite observations, these models are used to predict weather and give a picture of how the Earth's systems and climate are changing.    This short video introduces the NCCS and takes you behind-the-scenes into the fascinating field of climate modeling.
