Case University of Helsinki: PRACE resources in near-earth space simulation
PRACE resources have been crucial for Minna Palmroth's research group in the near-earth space simulation with the Vlasiator space weather code.
Palmroth's group has been able to utilize the most effective, so called Tier-0 supercomputers several times during recent years.
Minna Palmroth, Professor for Computational Space Physics, University of Helsinki states:
"We wouldn't cope scientifically without PRACE at all. PRACE is the most crucial part of our project. If we were not be able to get PRACE resources we would not be able to run our codes at all."
