Abstract:   Since the advent of the first computers, the simulation of the atmosphere and the oceans has played a mutually beneficial role with the development of more powerful computing capabilities. Computers in turn enable more sophisticated observation of the earth and more realistic simulation of earth systems and processes. Earth system simulations are always among the first set of applications to validate, yet challenge, new computational technology and capabilities. More capable technology also enables more realistic numerical representation and simulation of the physics and dynamics of the atmosphere, oceans, and land processes, leading to credible, valuable climate simulations and predictions.

The session will concentrate on the technology-enabled observation and simulation of climate studies and climate prediction, and speculate on trends in technology and innovative new capabilities for climate simulations to enable more intelligent decision-making for safety, security, and economic value in society.
