Last week on March 22, the Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) announced the winners of the 2016 High Performance Computing (HPC) Achievement Awards during the annual NERSC Users Group meeting at Berkeley Lab.Congratulations go to Charles Koven and William Riley of the Climate and Ecosystem Sciences Division as well as David Lawrence (not pictured) of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. They were honored for their role in using an Earth system model to demonstrate the atmospheric effect of emissions released from carbon sequestered in melting permafrost soil.
