SGCI Client CERA Uses Frontera Supercomputer for Storm Surge Forecasts

Hurricane season is behind us now, but the important work of tracking storm surge forecasts continues. Results of storm simulations generated by several supercomputers, including Frontera at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, are fed to CERA (Coastal Emergency Risks Assessment) , an interactive web mapper, where they are then converted into a visual map and annotated with useful information. This can be, for instance, real-time tide and river gauge data to show how forecasts...
