In January the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued a press release announcing a massive supercomputer upgrade that will boost accuracy and the efficiency of U.S. weather models. NOAA’s combined weather and climate supercomputing system will be among the 30 fastest in the world. Two Dell systems will be added to the IBMS and [...]

Weather satellites are the backbone of the National Weather Service (NWS). The satellites are fitted with instruments that observe weather and collect measurements. The data from the satellite travels to the NWS where supercomputers and expert meteorologists run models that turn out sophisticated forecasts. The first of NOAA’s Geostationary Operational Environmental Observations (GOES) satellite has [...]
