Unlocking the mysteries of the most devastating thunderstorms
Leigh Orf, a professor in atmospheric sciences Central Michigan University, talks about his early interest in severe weather and how he's advancing our understanding of some of the most devastating thunderstorms and tornadoes on Earth.
Many problems, many objectives
Patrick Reed's team at Cornell University created a new algorithm to solve problems that require optimization of many conflicting objectives. His team focuses on managing droughts, but their methodology can be used in many other fields.
Blue Waters research featured on cover of Nature
Nature featured a visualization from Warren Mori's research group on the cover of the Nov. 2014 issue. The image, by Frank Tsung and Weiming An, shows a high-efficiency plasma wakefield accelerator, which may be a milestone in the development of affordable and compact accelerators for many applications.
