How can we leverage the potential of high-performance computing to better model the effect of global climate change? Microsoft researcher Dan Reed examines this question in a new article for the Microsoft Environment web site. According to Dan, "Computational science now constitutes the third pillar of the scientific enterprise, a peer alongside theory and physical experimentation. This is especially important in a field such as climate change studies, where the models are complex — multidisciplinary and multivariate — and one cannot conduct parametric experiments at planetary scale. Fortunately, the same technology used to build desktop and laptop computers now enables us to evaluate these complex models."
