Tools/Models installed on the Cluster
  • WRF
  • In-house codes based on Finite Difference Method(FDM) and Discontinuous Galerkin (DG)
  • Matlab 
  • Arc GIS Software: ArcGIS software enables you to discover patterns, relationships, and trends in your data that are not readily apparent in databases, spreadsheets, or statistical packages. Beyond displaying your data as points on a map, ArcGIS Desktop gives you the power to manage and integrate your data, perform advanced analysis, model and automate operational processes, and display your results on professional-quality maps. ArcGIS for Desktop is available in three license levels—Basic, Standard, and Advanced (formerly ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo, respectively).
  • Surfer 13 Software : Surfer is a full-function 3D visualization, contouring and surface modelingpackage that runs under Microsoft Windows. Surfer is used extensively forterrain modeling, bathymetric modeling, landscape visualization, surface analysis, contour mapping, watershed and 3D surface mapping, gridding, volumetric and much more.
