Research collaboration wins prize

During the the opening gala at SC13 the Enlighten your Research global competition announced this years four prize winning projects.

'An Advanced Distributed Computing Approach to High-Resolution Climate Modeling' - a project led by Prof Henk Dijkstra (Utrecht University) in which Dr David Wallom from the Oxford eResearch Centre is a partner, alongside collaborators from the Netherlands eScience Centre, LMU (Germany), Rutgers University (USA) and STFC - was one of the successful projects.

The project will distribute  component parts of the Community Earth Systems Model to large HPC facilities in the Netherlands (SURF-Sara), Germany (LMU), the UK (STFC) and the US. These will be connected by 10G lightpath networks provided by the competition sponsors JaNET, SURF and Internet2.
