The Japan Agency for Marine-Earth
Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) has introduced supercomputer
systems for promoting research activities in JAMSTEC.
New supercomputer systems, including SGI scalar parallel system and NEC vector parallel system, have been in operation since March
2012, being used for numerical simulation and data analysis
in the field of earth science.
Moreover, linkage with the Earth Simulator will be seen in applications
such as pre/post processing of large-scale simulations.
