Award-Winning Visualization Dives into Arctic Ocean

TACC shared an award for Best Visualization with UT Austin's Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at SC18 for "Circulation in the Arctic Ocean and its Marginal Seas: From Low Latitudes to the Pole and Back." TACC's Stampede2 and Maverick supercomputers produced the visualization, and most of the data was generated by the Sverdrup cluster at the Oden Institute.

A Newborn's Lung

TACC's James Carson and his colleagues are working on LungMAP, a project funded by the National Institutes of Health. The LungMAP team has built a comprehensive, open access data resource of the developing lungs of both lab mice and humans. The data is advancing knowledge of how lungs develop with the ultimate goal of helping premature babies.
