"Climate Science in the Age of Exascale" by Bjorn Stevens

With introduction by SC20 General Chair Christine E. Cuicchi, view the keynote talk at “SC20: The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis” featuring Professor Bjorn Stevens of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology. Prof. Stevens discusses how exascale computing is impacting two opportunities that are changing the face of climate science. One arises from what exascale will enable; the other from what it will not.

How Cloudy is the Earth?

This video by Prof. Bjorn Stevens sheds light on clouds and their significance for the climate. It has, at least up until now, generally been thought that patterns of cloudiness are controlled by large scale weather systems. Research by Prof. Stevens and his co-authors show how small and intermediate scales of motion substantially pattern fields, adding a new piece to the puzzle of cloud-controlling factors. © Bjorn B.

Watching Water

What is it about the mighty water molecule that makes it so important? Does an understanding of a few key facts about water help us to better understand our atmosphere, patterns of weather, climate and climate change? In his lecture at the New England Aquarium on 15.10.2015, Prof Bjorn Stevens, Director at Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, answered these questions.
