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.

67 climate modelling groups use OASIS3-MCT to assemble more than 80 coupled applications

superadmin |  10 September 2019

OASIS3-MCT is a coupler of codes developed at Cerfacs and used around the world, mainly for climate modelling applications. Our last survey confirms that OASIS3-MCT is used by 67 modelling groups to assemble more than 80 different coupled applications over the 5 continents. These applications include global or regional configurations of ocean and atmosphere models but also sea ice, sea level, wave, ocean biogeochemistry, land, vegetation, river routing, hydrological and atmospheric chemistry models. OASIS3-MCT is used in 5 of the 7 European Earth System Models participating to the 6th Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6) that produces the climate simulations forming the basis of the next report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)”Read more
