Scientific computer circuit board (DI00687)
Few atmospheric scientists today could conduct research without computers. The more powerful the computer, the more realistic the models it can create. For those involved in investigations of the complexities of climate change or storm formation, a supercomputer is essential as a human brain to interpret the results. Given the complexity and global nature of the problems researchers must tackle in the years to come, computers are certain to maintain a central role.
