Machine learning and the post-Dennard era of climate simulation Conventional computational hardware has reached some physical limits: the phenomenon known as ‘Dennard scaling’ gave rise to Moore’s Law, and many cycles of exponential growth in computing capacity. The consequence is that we now anticipate a computing future of increased concurrency and slower arithmetic. Earth system […]
Venkatramani Balaji has joinded LSCE-IPSL as a « Make our planet great again » (MOPGA) laureate for a five-year period. He will work in close collaboration with the Climate Modelling Centre of the IPSL on his project entitled HRMES (High Resolution Modeling of the Earth System). He proposes to use machine learning techniques to tackle uncertainties in […]
A training course about the running environment of IPSL models will take place on 27th and 28th of November at IDRIS in Orsay. This course is for beginners and for people who want to refresh their memory. The program for these two days is: overview of modipsl/libIGCM tools, how to launch a simulation, the post-processing […]
Dans la suite du projet CONVERGENCE, et en lien avec l’infrastructure de recherche Climeri-France, une réunion pour présenter les données, le matériel, les outils logiciels, etc. qui ont été développés et mis en place pour stocker et analyser la base de données multi-modèles CMIP6 aura lieu le lundi 19 novembre en visioconférence Jussieu / CNRM […]
IPSL welcomes MOPGA fellow Katsumasa Tanaka, a Make Our Planet Great Again (MOPGA) laureate for a 5 month visit (August-December 2018). Katsumasa Tanaka is from the National Institute for Environmental Studies in Japan. His research interest relates to optimal greenhouse gas emission trajectories to fulfill climate objectives, climate metrics, climate equity, among other topics.
Pascale Braconnot from LSCE and IPSL CMC becomes a member of the WCRP Joint Scientific Committee (JSC) from January 2019. See the annoucement here https://www.wcrp-climate.org/news/wcrp-news/1377-jsc-2019.
The IS-ENES3 project led by IPSL has been successful and is now invited for contract preparation by the H2020 research programme. The project is the third phase of the « Infrastructure for the European Network of Earth System Modelling ». The final report of the second phase is available here.
The draft WCRP Strategic Plan 2019-2029 is now available for public consultation.
