Cerfacs Enter the world of high performance ...

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.

Sparse Days in Saint-Girons IV

Brigitte Yzel |  29 March 2022

Sparse Days Meeting 2022 🗓️  20-22 June 2022  @ Saint-Girons, France   🌐   Sparse Days 2022 will be held in Saint-Girons, Ariège, from 20-22 June. This enhanced version of Sparse Days is being co-organized by Cerfacs and ENSEEIHT/IRIT. It will be the fourth meeting in Saint- Girons following the tradition of the previous meetings held in 1994, 2003, and 2015. The tradition involves coupling our highly successful annual technical meeting with the ambience and hospitality of this wonderful Pyrenean town which encourages fruitful informal exchanges between participants.    Read more


Press releases on the NextSim EuroHPC project

CERFACS |  9 February 2022

Press talks about the NextSim EuroHPC project. CERFACS is involved in two major points. The first topic is to extend the numerical capabilities of the code to perform scale-resolving simulations of jet noise configurations on exascale supercomputers. The second focus is to exploit data from these simulations by extracting or visualising relevant physical information during the computation. CERFACS is involved in the NextSim project (). The primary objective is to increase the capabilities of Computational Fluid Dynamics tools on extreme-scale parallel computing platforms for aeronautical design. This project has received funding from the European High-Performance Computing Joint Undertaking (JU) under grant agreement N° 956104. The JU receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and Spain, France, Germany. This project has received funding from the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) under grant agreement N° ANR-20-EHPC-0002-02. For more information, please visit Read more
