ORNL and NOAA Launch New Supercomputer for Climate Research


C5 supercomputer will increase climate modeling capabilities.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has partnered with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to launch a new supercomputer dedicated to climate science research, which will be one of three NOAA computers operating at ORNL.

The new system, called C5, is an HPE Cray machine with more than 10 petaflops (or 10 million billion calculations per second) of peak theoretical performance, which is almost double the power of the two previous systems combined, says the announcement.

The goal of the partnership is to increase NOAA’s climate modeling capabilities to advance critical research.
