Audience watches presenter.

NOAA researchers were involved in several technical presentations at SC10 this year, hosted a booth, and also participated in the job fair.

Researchers discussed Graphics Processing Units and how to use the processors – designed to improve video games – in weather and climate modeling. They highlighted the NOAA Global Interoperability Project, and unveiled N-NEW, a next-generation, secure network to serve the weather and climate research community.

This year’s conference drew more than 12,000 attendees from across the country and internationally. Among the conference-goers were many students who swarmed the exhibit hall, handing out their resumes in search of internships and employment opportunities.
