IBM, UBD team up for climate modeling research

Develop hydrological climate models based on regional climate data

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM and Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) have signed an agreement to collaborate on climate modeling research that will investigate impact of climate change on flood forecasting, crop yields, renewable energy and health of rainforests in the region.

IBM said that the new agreement will help UBD accelerate its research capabilities in biodiversity, energy and agrotechnology.

Under the terms of agreement, UBD will acquire an IBM Blue Gene supercomputer, the first of its kind in the South East Asia (ASEAN) region, to provide high performance computing power for collaborative work.

In addition, researchers from both UBD and IBM will work together to develop hydrological climate models based on regional climate data, which will be incorporated into weather models to enable flood forecasting and predict climatic impact on rainforests.

IBM Research Partnerships vice president Tom Reeves said the research collaboration with UBD has the potential to drive new breakthroughs in understanding of regional climate change and translating that knowledge into improved flood forecasting and higher crop yield.
