Not long ago, it would have taken several years to run a high-resolution simulation on a global climate model. But using supercomputing resources at NERSC, climate scientist Michael Wehner of Berkeley Lab's Computational Research Division was able to complete a run in just three months.

CRD Reorganized for Strategic Alignment, Clarity
Modelling a 3D Map of the Adolescent Universe
Alexandre Chorin Awarded National Medal of Science
Computational Research Division Director David Brown announced a reorganization of the Computational Research Division at the October CRD All-Hands meeting, creating four new Departments aligned with CRD’s strategic directions, effective November 3, 2014.
Using extremely faint light from galaxies 10.8 billion light years away, scientists have created one of the most complete, three-dimensional maps of a slice of the adolescent universe—just 3 billion years after the Big Bang.
Alexandre Chorin, a mathematician with Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division and a University Professor of mathematics at UC Berkeley, was named today by President Obama as a recipient of the National Medal of Science, the nation’s highest honor for achievement and leadership in advancing the fields of science and technology.
