Climate science relies on modeling and computational simulation. Improving the algorithms and codes related to climate modeling is an ongoing research effort. One such example can be found in a talk by Andrew Salinger at the recent SIAM Conference on CS&E; this talk highlighted one of these areas of research – improving solvers in climate codes. These have use in ice sheet simulations, as well as in atmosphere, ocean, and tracer transport applications. For an audio recording of the talk, click here. The abstract for the talk can found here.
