 The digital revolution of Earth-system science

(Nature Computational Science. Vol 1, Nr. 1, pages 104-113, Feb. 2021)


Computational science is crucial for delivering reliable weather and climate predictions. However, despite decades of high-performance computing experience, there is serious concern about the sustainability of this application in the post-Moore/Dennard era. Here, we discuss the present limitations in the field and propose the design of a novel infrastructure that is scalable and more adaptable to future, yet unknown computing architectures.
