The Download: Research Technology and Climate
Using NYU's Research Tech Tools to Understand Environmental Issues
There are many NYU researchers working in fields related to climate and the environment. NYU research technology resources, which include high-performance computing and data services, can play a crucial role in helping researchers succeed. Below is a sampling of some of the environmental research projects that have been covered by the Download over the years.
Celebrating one year online, NYU's Greene supercomputer is making an impact in COVID-19 research, political science, climate change, and beyond.
From physics to Fortran, learn how NYU Courant's Edwin Gerber uses HPC resources, including NYU's Greene supercomputer, to simplify climate modeling and advance climate change research.
NYU's Debra Laefer expands on her Dublin LiDAR map with a scan of Sunset Park. Learn more about the project and how the maps and LiDAR technology can be used in everything from archaeology to urban and environmental planning.
The rice of the future must be cultivated using less water and less land while undergoing severe environmental stresses. Mapping the rice genome is a step toward attaining these goals.
New York is a loud place. The Sounds of New York project uses machine learning to analyze the cacophony of city life to better understand how it affects health and how to mitigate its impact.
Although they can get lost in the shadows, New York City contains a lot of trees, and those trees play a vital role in the urban ecosystem far beyond the obvious contribution of beautification.
