The project Historically, complex climate models (that is, combined atmosphere– ocean global circulation models) have run only on supercomputers. Recently, however, the increase in speed and memory of the typical home or business PC has opened up the possibility of undertaking serious modeling projects on such equipment. Projects such as SETI@home,2 fightaidsathome, and Cure Cancer have demonstrated the principles and techniques of distributed computing, which provides a mechanism for… CONTINUE READING
