ABSTRACT
The article discusses the use of Altix 450 computer and storage systems of SGI by Brazil-based Center for Parallel Computing (NACAD) at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro for its Potential Impacts and Environmental Risks of the Oil and Gas Industry in the Amazon (PIATAM) Project. The project aims to assess the risk of oil spill or gas leakage along the Amazon River. SGI computers allow NACAD to perform large simulations of water flows in the environment, increasing its computational speed by a factor of 5.
