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.

Recent Goddard Earth Observing System Forward Processing (GEOS FP) model outputs are being highlighted for the first time on NASA's Earth Observatory, featured in the story “Just Another Day on Aerosol Earth.”

GMAO Welcomes Five Summer Visiting Interns

For the summer of 2018, GMAO is pleased to host five visitors: three were selected as part of the One Stop Shopping Initiative for NASA Interns, Fellows and Scholars program, which is being replaced by a new NASA intern and fellowship program beginning in fall 2018.

GMAO’s “Notion of Ocean Motion” Demonstration Part of NASA’s Earth Day 2018

Members of the GMAO team took part in NASA’s Earth Day activities held in the Main Hall of Washington DC’s Union Station on April 19 and 20, 2018.

MERRA-2 AMIP data (M2AMIP) now available

The GMAO is now providing MERRA-2 AMIP data (M2AMIP) a 10-member GCM experiment based on the climate forcing configuration used in MERRA-2. All modeling features in the model are identical to MERRA-2, except for the lack of observational analysis, and provides the model's realization of present day climate. Most MERRA-2 variables are available. For one member, hourly data have been preserved, otherwise the 10 members are monthly data, and include an ensemble mean.

GMAO continues to provide support for ASPIRE

GMAO once again provided customized forecast support for the launch of a Black Brant IX suborbital sounding rocket carrying the Advanced Supersonic Parachute Inflation Research Experiment (ASPIRE). ASPIRE 2 was successfully launched at 12:19 p.m. EDT, March 31, 2018, from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility.

When in Rome: The GMAO Participates in the 5th International Conference on Reanalysis

One of major themes at the GMAO is “reanalysis”, a long-term, model-based analysis of multiple observational datasets using a fixed data assimilation system. exterior shot of venue This was the focus of the 5th International Conference on Reanalysis (ICR5) held in Rome, Italy between November 13 and 17, 2017.

GMAO Makes a Super Impact at Supercomputing Conference 2017

SC17, Supercomputing Conference 2017, brought together members of the international high-performance computing (HPC) community, consisting of scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, programmers, system administrators, and developers, for a technical program, tutorials, and poster sessions. NASA’s exhibit booth maintained a strong presence in the exhibit hall, partly through the contributions of GMAO staff who performed demonstrations and gave Hyperwall presentations

28th CERES Science Team Meeting and GMAO

The 28th CERES Science Team Meeting was held at GSFC on September 26–28, 2017, and the GMAO had a strong presence at the meeting. CERES (Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System) is an instrument that was first launched on the TERRA satellite in 1999 and currently flies on Aqua and Suomi-NPP. CERES measures both the solar-reflected and Earth-emitted radiation from the top of the atmosphere.
