Ice Calving

Recently, a chunk of ice the size of Delaware broke off Antarctica’s Larsen C ice shelf. With the help of Mellanox’s HPC, the University of Alaska is conducting fascinating work on ice sheets. Researchers from the Geophysical Institute, UAF, are studying the ice flow of the Greenland ice sheet and are on the fast track for credible modeling efforts that will help predict the future evolution of the Greenland ice sheet. Simulations that are needed as proof-of-concept; and the HPC resources provided by Mellanox, are enabling complex simulations that better resolve the physics of the Greenland ice sheet.
