New Wind-Farm Computer Simulations Unlock Increased Power Generation

January 5, 2015

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) have developed high-resolution computer simulations, done on the Trestles supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego, that take into account how the air flows within and around a wind-farm in unprecedented detail.

SDSC Researcher Co-Authors New Wildfire Progression Research

June 7, 2022

Direction and spread of an active wildfire are driven by fuel, topography and prevailing wind conditions. While data on fuel and topography can be mapped before the start of a wildfire, prevailing wind conditions are difficult to chart given their variability and uncertainty.

Intense Bursts of Star Formation Drive Fierce Galactic Winds

August 21, 2012

Fierce galactic winds powered by an intense burst of star formation may blow gas right out of massive galaxies, shutting down their ability to make new stars.

Supercomputer Simulations Help Optimize Floating Wind Farms

September 18, 2019

Researchers used SDSC’s Comet supercomputer to better understand the wake effects of large floating wind farm arrays, which have become more prevalent in recent years.

Coastal Heat Waves Can Tax Public Health – Even Outside of Summer

April 3, 2020

Heat waves driven by Santa Ana winds can cause perceptible impacts on hospitalizations for kidney failure, dehydration, and respiratory disease in fall, spring, and winter according to a team of San Diego scientists.

Supercomputer Simulations Help Researchers Predict Solar Wind Storms

July 7, 2020

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire and elsewhere used SDSC’s Comet supercomputer to validate a model using a machine learning technique called Dynamic Time Lag Regression (DTLR) to help predict the arrival of solar winds near the Earth’s orbit from physical parameters of the Sun.

The Wave Beneath Their Wings

April 22, 2021

Researchers at the University of California San Diego developed a theoretical model that describes how pelicans take advantage of wind updrafts generated by breaking waves to glide in a practice the scientists call wave-slope soaring.

X-Ray Snapshot of Butterfly Wings Reveals Underlying Physics of Color

June 10, 2016

A team of physicists that visualized the internal nanostructure of an intact butterfly wing has discovered two physical attributes that make those structures so bright and colorful.
