2014 in numbers – 7,500 years of computing time
In 2014, our volunteers donated nearly 250 billion seconds of computing time.
That’s more than 7,500 years of computing time, completing half a million successful simulations, for a total of nearly 2 billion credits.
As always, our thanks go out to our dedicated volunteers who let us run our climate models on their computers – we really couldn’t do this project at all without you!
We were running several different experiments in 2014 with a nearly even split between 3 big projects:
- Weather@home 2013 Australia and New Zealand heatwaves and drought [hadam3p_anz] 72,172,281,000s
- Weather@home 2014: the causes of the UK winter floods [hadam3p_eu] 61,225,243,00s
- RAPID-CHAAOS [hadcm3n & hadcm3s] 74,039,203,00s + 12,220,935,00s
Other smaller experiments include:
- HYDRA [hadam3pm2] 1,476,378,00s
- Weather@home Climate Accountability: the causes of extreme heat in the Western US [hadam3p_pnw] 16,486,965,00s
