When the supercontinent, Pangea, broke up during the Triassic and Jurassic periods, there were dramatic changes in Earth’s climate.  Prof David Schultz and his students used N8 HPC to run Palaeoclimate model simulations which revealed the spatial changes in climate between the Triassic and Jurassic.  Their results illustrate that the subtropics became slightly cooler and wetter despite the warming trend for the Earth’s average temperature.  To find out more about the use of “Build Your Own Earth”, please see the N8 HPC case study or the recently published paper in Geology Today.
