Bill Putman presents at Supercomputing 2019

NASA Goddard meteorologist Bill Putman previewed The Future of Global Numerical Weather Prediction with GEOS, filling the hyperwall with 6-kilometer GEOS global model predictions of this year's extreme U.S. tornado season and Category 5 Hurricane Dorian. For his high-resolution forecasts, Putman uses up to 80,000 Intel Skylake cores on the NCCS Discover supercomputer.

Bruce Pfaff presents at Supercomputing 2019

In his entertaining presentation "What Could Possibly Go Wrong? — The Myth of the Smooth Install", NCCS HPC Systems Engineer Bruce Pfaff drew a big crowd, using both humor and pathos to describe how the NCCS build team cleverly—and sometimes painfully—overcame both expected and unexpected obstacles while upgrading the Discover supercomputer over the years.
