We modeled the global atmospheric dispersion and deposition of radionuclides released from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant accident. The calculated concentrations have been compared to station observations by the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO).

We examined the influence of the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) on the atmospheric dispersion of pollution by computing the emission, transport and removal of idealized insoluble gaseous and water-soluble aerosol tracers, tagged by the continent of origin.

Understanding the evolution and changes of global climate is of utmost importance in the 21st century. The complexity of simulating the climate is reflected in the structure of the scientific codes in this research field. Scientists from The Cyprus Institute examined an alternative approach to heterogeneous computing in the many-core era for such Earth system models by porting the EMAC Earth System Model application to the DEEP platform. The challenge EMAC is composed of two extremely different code parts.

Cyprus Weather Forecast website launched in collaboration with the Cyprus Department of Meteorology.

Public Talks and Colloquium Series 2016

The website was developed and designed at CyI, featuring numerical weather prediction, real-time station observations and human meteorological forecasts by the Cyprus Department of Meterorology.

Computational resources and support are provided by the Cy-Tera Project, which is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the Republic of Cyprus through the Research Promotion Foundation.

A significant part of The Cyprus Institute’s mission is the promotion and dissemination of scientific knowledge through public lectures, colloquiums and seminars. In this framework the Institute founded in 2010 the Public Talks and Colloquium Series. The lectures are delivered by prominent scientists from local and international Universities and Institutes. All events are presented in English, and are open to the public. Unless otherwise noted, all Colloquia take place at The Cyprus Institute, Athalassa Campus - Guy Ourisson Building, Seminar Room (1st floor) and are scheduled for 45 minutes, followed by 15 minutes for questions by the audience.

CaSToRC CoS516 Course Final Project: “High Performance Visualisation for Large-Scale Scientific Data Analytics” submitted to the IEEE SciVis Contest 2015. Cosmological simulations are a cornerstone of our understanding of the Universe during its 13.7 billion year progression from small fluctuations that we see in the cosmic microwave background to today, where we are surrounded by galaxies and clusters of galaxies interconnected by a vast cosmic web. Simulations of the formation of structure in the Universe typically simulate dark matter, a collisionless fluid, as a discretized set of particles that interact only gravitationally.
