9.19.14 - Sensitivity of Tropical Cyclones to Parameterized Convection in the GEOS-5 Model
A Global Modeling and Assimilation Office study demonstrates that realistic tropical cyclone activity can be simulated in general circulation models with a resolution of about 25 kilometers and that modifications to the convective parametrization can lead to further improvements in realism.

09.11.14 - Interannual Variation in Phytoplankton Primary Production at a Global Scale
Running the NASA Ocean Biology Model at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS), the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office has computed the contributions of four phytoplankton groups to the total primary production—the global conversion of carbon dioxide into organic carbon.

09.04.14 - Visualizing Big Data
Clouds bend and swirl into a massive Category 4 typhoon that spins toward China. Luckily the storm only exists inside the mind of a supercomputer at the NCCS.
