Tasks & Software


  • Interface between the (Geoverbund ABC/J) geo-science community and JSC resources
  • Technical support (e.g. porting of user code, provisioning of standard implementations of relevant modelling systems and related datasets, performance optimization, information dissemination)
  • Coordination and help with SimLab TerrSys related issues of supported research projects (e.g. code maintenance, interchangeable software tools, design of data flow-paths and processing chains, pre- and post-processing, visualisation, data synthesis)
  • Support of (Geoverbund ABC/J) researchers in application for compute time
  • Participation in trainings and workshops
  • Own research activities on HPSC in the geosciences (surface atmosphere coupling, regional climate change projections), national and international collaborations
