Enhancing High-Resolution Weather Forecasting with HPC and NVIDIA GPUs

The use of NVIDIA GPUs in weather models has revolutionized weather prediction methods, making skillful, high-resolution predictions possible with reduced energy consumption and a smaller carbon footprint.

Solutions are in use around the world, including global models IFS from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), ICON from the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) and more.

Thinkmate also worked with the University of Oklahoma to enable real-time data collection of tornado behavior under extreme conditions:

  • Co-designed compute system capable of in-vehicle mounting
  • Record wind speed & direction in real-time to understand behavior and movement
  • Simulation testing in lab + model valuation based on atmospheric info

To learn more about the solutions these organizations are deploying, download the High Res Weather Forecasting solution brief to learn:

  • Weather prediction use cases
  • How organizations are achieving performance increases up to 24X
  • Sustainable computing (e.g., 5X lower cost, 10X less energy)
  • And more
