NCSA/NGA to map the Earth
NCSA will receive $11.1 million in initial funding from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency to fundamentally change the way the Earth is mapped.
Maximizing satellite coverage
A Cornell University researcher taps work he did using NCSA's Blue Waters supercomputer to fix a problem that's puzzled researchers for nearly 40 years.
Blue Waters uses deep learning to count trees
Scientists demonstrated a new method for mapping the location and size of trees growing outside of forests, discovering billions of trees in arid and semi-arid regions and laying the groundwork for more accurate global measurement of carbon storage on land.
Tackling airplane turbulence
Katelyn Barber, a former Blue Waters Graduate Fellow from the University of North Dakota, is using supercomputers to help the aviation industry better evaluate turbulence.
Blue Waters to combat COVID-19
The C3.ai Digital Transformation Institute, which spans multiple research institutions and private companies, seeks to apply computational resources and artificial intelligence to initially study COVID-19 and ways to curb its spread.
