    Widely varying scales of atmospheric motion make it extremely difficult to predict hurricane intensity even after decades of research. A new model capable of resolving a hurricane's deep convection motions was tested on a large sample of Atlantic tropical cyclones. Results show that using finer resolution can improve storm intensity predictions. View full abstract»

    Using sensitivity calculations, it's possible to better understand complex influences on typhoon evolution from organized convection to larger-scale weather systems. With Typhoon Lupit, for example, the rapid growth of small perturbations led to multiple errors that limited the accuracy of path and intensity forecasts. View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (5)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (524 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In electronic computing systems, the binary-coded decimal (BCD) method encodes decimal numbers with each digit represented by its own four-bit binary sequence. The method allows easy conversion to decimal digits for printing or display and also offers rapid decimal calculations. A proposed all-optical BCD adder uses a terahertz optical asymmetric demultiplexer (TOAD) to perform BCD addition in all... View full abstract»

    Accurate and compact computing recipe for evaluating correction terms for the Gaussian integration of analytic functions offers economy and high accuracy for many integrals of interest in physical sciences. The requirement of numerical integration in physical sciences is quite pervasive because many practical functions aren't integrable in closed form. A simple example is the error function Er�...

    When it comes to developing scientific software, the most prominent trait of scientists gathered around a specific project is their varied approach to computer science: they're not employed as developers, and they're often self-taught programmers. This article discusses that larger efforts require an organized, structured community to keep pace with the growth of software and related activities. View full abstract»

    As our brief literature review shows, the fractal dimension of an optimal path in the strong disorder limit often appears in statistical physics models and therefore might represent a fundamental property for many different natural systems. To emphasize this common behavior and further support our hypothesis that all such systems fall in the same universality class, we presented three recent model... View full abstract»

    The Novo-G supercomputer's architecture can adapt to match each application/s unique needs and thereby attain more performance with less energy than conventional machines. Reconfigurable computing can provide solutions for domain scientists at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional servers or supercomputers. As we describe here, the Novo-G machine, applications, research forum, and prelimi... View full abstract»

    Data assimilation aims to decrease errors in initial conditions of numerical weather prediction models, which are a primary source of uncertainty in hurricane prediction. This study examines the performance of three advanced techniques that assimilate inner-core, high-resolution Doppler radar observations for cloud-resolving hurricane initialization and forecasting for Hurricane Katrina.
