CASCADE Software Suite

The Computation and Predictions team is building upon pattern detection and statistical tools using the following approaches:

  • Exploit parallelism across time, spatial locations and ensemble members
    • TECA (Toolkit for Extreme Climate Analysis) exploits parallelism across time and ensembles
    • Parallel GEV tools exploit parallelism across spatial locations
  • Develop highly scalable code (computation, parallel I/O)

Computer Science Approaches

  • Analytics tools are implemented in C, C++, R
  • Utilize MPI for parallel execution on petascale platforms
  • Subscribe to state-of-the art data management practices
