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.

NYU Greene Supercomputer: Celebrating a Year of Breakthrough Research

Celebrating one year online, NYU's Greene supercomputer is making an impact in COVID-19 research, political science, climate change, and beyond.

Climate Change and High Performance Computing

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.

Ocean Turbulence, Sea Levels, and Machine Learning

Supercomputing resources like Greene are assisting Courant's Laure Zanna and her team of climate researchers.

Brooklyn Like You've Never Seen It Before

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.

Mapping the Design of Rice

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.

SONYC: Using Technology to Fight Noise Pollution

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.

Trees Count: Using GIS to Analyze New York’s Urban Ecosystem

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.
