ProSPect ice sheet models will ultimately contribute to DOE’s Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM). More information can be found at the E3SM homepage.
Congratulations to Irina Tezaur (Sandia Nationial Laboratories) who is a 2019 Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) recipient. Irina’s work on the development of MALI under the SciDAC PISCEES project is noted in her award citation (see additional links here and here).
BISICLES was featured on the cover of Geophysical Research Letters, volume 46, no. 3.
In collaboration with the E3SM Cryosphere Simulation Campaign and with support from DOE’s Data Management Program we worked with members of SciDAC’s RAPIDS institute on a number of scientific visualizations exploring ice sheet and ocean interactions in the Earth system. This work culminated in a finalist entry to the 2020 Supercomuting Scientific Visualization competition.
In May of 2021, a Nature paper was published that includes ProSPect contributions to the ISMIP6 project. The press release from the lead instituation at Kings College London can be found here. LANL and LBNL also issued their own press releases highlighting this work. The study was discussed in the New York Times and the Washington Post, as well as numerous other news outlets.
In July of 2021, Sam Kachuck was awarded a NERSC High Performance Computing Achievement Award for his work on simulations of coupled ice sheet and solid earth evolution in the Amundsen Sea Embayment. The award recognizes “early-career scientists who have made significant contributions to scientific computation using NERSC resources.”
Courtney Shafer, a student formerly working on our project at LBNL and now pursuing her PhD in glaciology at the University of Buffalo, has been awarded a DOE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship.
