Climate modeling and Global change (GLOBC)

Simulating the climate system dynamics

CERFACS conducts fundamental and applied research in the field of climate modeling and its global change. The “Climate modelling and global change” team (GLOBC) participates in the development of coupled models between the oceans, the atmosphere and the other components of the climate system. Numerical simulation of the evolution of these systems requires the use of high performance computers in order to correctly represent sufficiently fine spatial and temporal scales to reproduce the dynamics of the observed climate. Many simulations are carried out through various research projects and the analysis of the results leads to numerous publications in international journals.

 

To develop high level softwares

The team strategy is based on a dual approach combining theoretical modeling studies and on the development of high-level softwares, such as, for instance,  the   OASIS and OpenPALM couplers, needed to address the various linkages involved in climate science or in multi-physical / multi-component industrial applications.

To contribute to application and transverse axes

The GLOBC team is particularly involved in the following application areas

These application areas feed and are fed by the following transversal areas:

All this research takes place through the coordination and participation in national and international research programs.

For many years, the team is associated with the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) through the UMR CECI 5318 research unit.

CERFACS cited in l’Usine Nouvelle, Industrie et Technologies

Corentin LAPEYRE |  25 November 2022

The work of CERFACS, in collaboration with SAFRAN, on the hybridization of physical simulation software with machine learning techniques, has been cited in the magazine l'Usine Nouvelle, and is included in a detailed write-up called "Simulation and machine learning combine their strengths" in the magazine Industries et Technologies this month. This work, supervised at CERFACS by Corentin Lapeyre, and at SAFRAN by Stéphane Richard, is at the forefront of developments in terms of exploiting artificial intelligence tools for the simulation and design of physical systems.Read more
