Shami Tsai has successfully benchmarked the analytical chemistry formula derived in Heng, Lyons & Tsai (2016) and Heng & Lyons (2016) against the TEA code, which computes equilibrium chemistry via Gibbs free energy minimization. This has... more
The Exoclimes Simulation Platform (ESP) was born from a necessity to move beyond Earth-centric climate simulators, to provide the scientific community studying exoplanets with an ultra-fast, open-source and all-encompassing set of simulational tools. The ESP is designed to harness the power of GPU (graphics processing unit) computing, which affords a speed-up at the order-of-magnitude level. Our ultimate goal is for ESP users to become co-developers.
