"Referring to the humongous simulations that are used in climate research, Zacharia said scientists are benefiting from a good balance of increased processing power and memory, better interconnect technology, a sturdier OS -- Linux -- and advances in mathematical algorithms.
"Without a doubt, we're in a wonderful era with a number of purposeful systems and machines that are entirely focused on the scientific and technical market," he said. "I believe computing is going to be the great enabler in science and research in climate because there's no other way."
