Welcome to the Centre for High-Performance Scientific Computing in Terrestrial Systems, HPSC TerrSys


the Centre for scientific code development and simulations in the ABC/J Geoverbund


The development, implementation, and application of generic key technologies for integrated simulations of Terrestrial Systems at the catchment and basin scale is the focus of the Centre for HPSC in Terrestrial Systems. Key technologies include, for example, physics-based scientific code and data assimilation infrastructure based on advanced parallel paradigms and algorithms. These technologies are needed to assess and manage water resources in the context of global change that impacts socioeconomic well-being, human health and security worldwide. The Centre’s research program is built on the unique interdisciplinary research and teaching infrastructure of the ABC/J Geoverbund and state-of-the-art supercomputing environments at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre and the different Universities. The Centre strives to complete the path from fundamental research in computational Earth’s sciences to predictions useful for the general public, industry, and public policy makers.
