Singapore using power of HPC for even better climate projections

Taken from Singapore developing its own ‘crystal ball’ for better climate projections

Global temperatures and sea levels are rising, certain extreme weather events could intensify, and rainfall patterns could become more erratic. But at a finer resolution, many questions remain about how these changes would manifest in Singapore and South-east Asia. These are questions that scientists at the Centre for Climate Research Singapore (CCRS) – a division under the National Environment Agency’s Meteorological Service Singapore – are looking into. CCRS is working with the National Supercomputing Centre to downscale these models to produce grid cells spanning from about 2km to 8km.
