The bottom image was taken by NASA's GOES satellite at the same point in time. A comparison of the two images shows how well the model projection matched the observed cloud features. (NASA)
Scientists compose complex math equations to replicate behaviors of Earth systems

At its most basic, a global climate model is a computer software program that solves complex equations that mathematically describe how Earth's various systems, processes and cycles work, interact and react under certain conditions. It's math in action.

This series shows the evolution of the universe as simulated by a run called the Q Continuum, performed on the Titan supercomputer and led by Argonne physicist Katrin Heitmann. These images give an impression of the detail in the matter distribution in the simulation. At first the matter is very uniform, but over time gravity acts on the dark matter, which begins to clump more and more, and in the clumps, galaxies form. Image by Heitmann et. al.
