The Alliance for Computational
Earth Science (ACES) at M.I.T
focuses on developing and deploying advanced computational
technologies to address challenging problems of Earth science.
ACES is a platform for cross-disciplinary collaboration between Earth
science researchers and computer science researchers at MIT.
Several different groups are participating in the ACES effort -- you can
read about some of their projects on this web site.
Applications in ACES address a wide span of questions about how planetary
systems work. Answering these questions requires substantial computational
resources together with environments that allow researchers to
harness computational resources efficiently and productively.
Participants in ACES are engaged in both the development of novel compute
environments and in their application to challenging problems in planetary
