Oceanographers use super-computers to help farmers in Bangladesh

This item was filled under Climate
A computer model that aims to provide physical information on the Bangladesh delta to policy makers there, has received the ‘impact’ award from the national super-computing facility, ARCHER. This is the first model to link the open ocean with the limit of tidal interaction in Bangladesh. This model predicts changes in tidal water level and salinity in the delta region, and could be used to make decisions about how to manage the physical environment, such as where to take irrigation water from and what crops to grow. ...
