Cerfacs Enter the world of high performance ...

Sparse Days Meeting 2014 at CERFACS, Toulouse

Sparse Days Meeting 2014 at CERFACS, Toulouse
June 5th-6th, 2014

 

 

The annual “Sparse Days at CERFACS” took place on the 5th and 6th of June, 2014.

The Sparse Days meeting was similar in format to previous years.
No invited speakers and all talks in plenary session.
Talks on any aspect covered by the title on numerical linear algebra, sparse optimization and on data assimilation fitted well with some of the current research at CERFACS.
As always we suggested a special theme which, for this year, was in the study of how to monitor accuracy and error when solving the very large systems that we hope will become tractable when we have Exascale computing.

A fiery wakeup call for climate science

superadmin |  26 February 2020

The extent of the recent wildfires in Australia significantly exceeded the projections of any member of the multi-model CMIP archive.  This highlights how current multi-model ensembles may be under-representing the risks of natural disasters under climate change.  Limited coupled system process representation in most models coupled with a lack of parameter uncertainty exploration means that some risks are not explored by the existing international multi-model framework.  This calls for a reassessment of how to focus climate model development on providing robust risk quantification for those impacts which most directly affect society.
