Abstract

years ago New computer at NCAR* The National Center for Atmospheric Research has installed a new computer, the Control Data 6600, the world's fastest commercially available computer. Delivered to the NCAR Computing Facility in January , Control Data 6600 replaces the 3600 model that had served the center since 1963. Dr. Glenn E. Lewis, head of the computing facility, said the new computer should be three to five times as fast as the old one in routine operations, and for special problems, with extra effort in programming, the 6600 can be ten times as fast as the 3600. NCAR scientists will use the new computer to help construct and experiment with mathematical models of the atmosphere. According to Dr. Walter Orr Roberts, NCAR's director, "where hazards, cost, or difficulties are prohibitive, we must model, mimic nature, and theorize, in order to decide whether and how to experiment in the real atmosphere. For this to succeed, we must, of course, find way s to formulat e models equal to the complexity of nature, and to discover the means of testing them on computers fast enough for us to live long enough to evaluate results." *Bu!l.
