C & S Colloquium: Dr. Sankar Arumugam

December 6, 2019 @ 1:45 pm - 2:30 pm
Mann 323, 2501 Stinson Drive
Raleigh, NC 27675 United States

Title: Design and Adaptation under a changing world - Opportunities for Synthesis and Convergence Research Abstract: One of the critical concerns in using climate change projections for design and adaptation is in the uncertainty and variability in the projections depending on the emission scenarios.  It has been shown that this uncertainty in the projections  is at its minimum  over the near-term (10-30 years), which is a critical time scale for infrastructure planning. In this sabbatical talk, I present a methodology…

Energy Systems Modeling with High Performance Computing Resources: Joe DeCarolis

October 20 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Climate change coupled with rapid technological innovation is driving large scale change in the global energy system. Computer models of the energy system – referred to as energy optimization system models – provide a way to examine future energy system evolution, test the effects of proposed policy, and explore the role of future uncertainty. Modeling the whole energy system is computationally intensive and requires large input datasets. In addition, in order to deliver insights that are robust to large future…
