Using a Supercomputer to Keep Catastrophic Flooding From Being a Catastrophe

The ClimEx project developed highly accurate simulations of extreme weather events around the world. The ClimEx models allow scientists to predict the timing and path of weather events with greater speed and accuracy.

In the spring of 2019, an extreme flood struck the eastern region of Canada. Rivers ran where cars once drove. Thousands evacuated only to return to waterlogged homes filled with mud. Researchers called the weather event a “100-year flood,” meaning such a disaster has just a one-percent chance of occurring each year. But in a world racked by climate change, this statistic may soon be rendered meaningless. Just two years prior, a “100-year flood” struck the same flood-prone area.

Have you ever, even once, looked in the mirror and thought less than kind things about the image staring back at you? Noticing every fine line, dark spot, sagging skin and then perhaps researched lotions, potions, or even possible treatments and/or surgeries to correct them? How about when someone gives you a compliment about how beautiful you are or look and your first reaction is to laugh it off, sound familiar?

My hope is to inspire people to improve their self-confidence, provide a fresh outlook on what “beautiful” means and feel empowered to define your own sense of beauty.
