IS-ENES has updated its infrastructure strategy. Download the report here
Due to significant issues recently found in their model components, IPSL CMC has decided to stop the production of its pre-industrial spinup climate simulation that started on March 29th. Given the tight schedule it was operating on and the severity of the issues found, IPSL CMC has no other option but to withdraw its participation […]
IPSL CMC has launched its first CMIP6 simulation today after more than two years of model development, model tuning and preparation of an optimized workflow for the output data. A large number of simulations from the DECK and the various Model Intercomparison Projects will now be performed on a special HPC allocation provided by GENCI. […]
IPSL CMC was awarded 16 millions hours of cpu for a « grand challenge » on irene, the new supercomputer of the TGCC. The project aims at testing the atmospheric general circulation model, both in its old and new dynamical cores, at increasingly high resolution, with the full suite of outputs.
IPSL Climate Modelling Centre is proud to be a partner of ExtremeEarth preparatory project through its affiliation with CNRS. ExtremeEarth aims to « revolutionize Europe’s capability to predict and monitor environmental extremes and their impacts on society enabled by the imaginative integration of edge and exascale computing and beyond, and the real-time exploitation of pervasive environmental […]
The second draft of the IPCC 1.5°C special report is available for review by experts: see http://www.ipcc.ch/report/sr15/
Congratulations to the scientists selected for the Make Our Planet Great Again scheme. For those coming to IPSL laboratories, we look forward for their contributions and leadership to the IPSL Climate Modelling Centre. A glimpse on who they are can be found here.
Sylvie Joussaume has received a « star of Europe » award from the French Ministry of Research for her coordination of the IS-ENES2 European project. The project entitled « Infrastructure for the European Network of Earth System Modelling » is key for our climate modelling activities. The whole story is available here (in French).
Dr Martin Vancoppenolle from the IPSL Climate Modelling Centre has been awarded the WCRP/WWRP International Prize for Model Development 2017. The details of the award can be found here
