Scientific Computation Application Partnerships in Biological and Environmental Research

DOE Program Managers

Dorothy Koch
Biological and Environmental Research (BER)

Randall Laviolette
Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR)

The current BER SciDAC Partnerships efforts focus on: climate and environmental sciences. These partnerships aim to advance the simulation and predictive capabilities of state-of-science climate modeling.

Current Projects

Multiscale Methods for Accurate, Efficient, and Scale-Aware Models of the Earth System
This project aims to produce better models for critical processes and constituents from ocean-eddy and cloud-system to global scales through improved physical and computational implementations.

Lead Investigator: William Collins (
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Predicting Ice Sheet and Climate Evolution at Extreme Scales (PISCEES)
PISCEES aims to enable quantitative predictions of coupled ice-sheet/climate evolution using a new generation of high-performance computers and computational tools.

Lead Investigator: Stephen F Price (
Los Alamos National Laboratory
