Supercomputer to be Used in Smog Prediction
A computer that has the capability of accurately forecasting and analyzing the cause of hazy or smog filled days is said to be operational in the next three or five years. the computer stimulation model is used to develop using the technology of Tianhe-1A that supercomputer that is recently ranked as the world’s fastest supercomputer and the data being used is revised in light of actual observation data from other monitoring stations
The computer model is also used in forecasting the weather conditions a few days in advance than the current monitoring systems being used. Authorities have set up more than 600 monitoring stations in various areas in 114 cities and is continuously reading released data online daily. Other data are also collected through traditional media.
Smog is different in regions as certain attributes are considered in its formation ranging from physical, chemical, atmospheric and biological factors as needed to be considered. There are already several achievements that were made in the fields of aerospace, climate prediction and weather forecasts and other environmental simulations ever since the Tainhe-1A was operational. the project is a collaboration of the National Meteorological Center and the Chine Academy of Meteorological Sciences and the NSC and Tsinghua University in Tianjin.
