About keynote speech:
Eddy-Resolving Earth System Modeling: Recent Insights and Future Development

The earth system is characterized by complex cross-scale and cross-sphere interactions. Multi-sphere coupled numerical simulation of the earth system based on supercomputers provides a core tool for deeply understanding the basic law of earth system evolution, accurately predicting and forecasting future changes in the earth system, and promoting the development of earth system science. This presentation reviews the recent progress of the earth system modeling, envisages its future development, and proposes the necessity of ultra-high-resolution earth system modeling.
