A new study uses identical tests to evaluate the accuracy and performance of current models of Earth's magnetic field, then extrapolates the results to anticipated "petascale" supercomputers.Read More »Mathematical Geophysics
A new approach for representing areas of low-lying mountains improves the simulation of atmospheric flow over gentle topography without increasing computational requirements.Read More »Mathematical Geophysics
A new study shows that aerosols have a strong impact on the reflectivity of the Earth's atmosphere, absorbing more solar radiation within the atmospheric layers than previously thought.Read More »Mathematical Geophysics
Increasing ice temperatures and decreasing ice viscosities could lead to "thermal-viscous collapse" of the Greenland ice sheet, raising sea levels as much as 51 centimeters over the next 500 years.Read More »
