TERI institute acquires supercomputer
The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) has acquired a supercomputer from IT services company Wipro, to develop a better understanding of climate variability and change at different spatial and temporal scales. Headquartered in Delhi, India, and with locations worldwide, TERI has been improving its computing capabilities in order to better predict climate change at both a global and regional scale. Impacts of climate change in India are unique due to the diversity of ecosystems and topography. Some of the key collaborations on climate research include those with Bjerknes Center for Climate Research, Norway; the United Kingdom Meteorological Office, UK; and Asian Disaster Preparedness Center, Thailand. TERI is also contributing to the state action plans on climate change in a number of states in India.
