LADCO staff have been engaged in pioneering development activities to enable meteorology and air quality modeling using cloud services. LADCO has turned to the cloud to both access flexible, on-demand high performance computing resources and to enable the transfer of modeling capabilities to our member states.

The LADCO Executive Director describes the motivation and approach for using the Amazon Web Service cloud in a March 2021 AWS Public Services Sector blog post (Modeling Clouds in the Cloud for Air Pollution Planning: 3 Tips from LADCO on Using HPC).

LADCO’s work on air quality modeling in the cloud was also presented at the 2021 CMAS Conference.  See our Executive Director’s presentation below.  Reach out to our director, Zac Adelman, if you’re interesting in learning more about how we’re using AWS to support our air pollution applications and research activities here at LADCO.
