Whitepaper #024 in the Decadal Survey for Solar and Space Physics (Heliophysics) 2024-2033. Main topics: infrastructure/workforce/other programmatic. Additional topics: state of the profession; research tools and infrastructure.
First-principles, self-consistent geospace modeling will require at least exascale-level computing capabilities. Taking full advantage of exascale resources requires both the creation of trans-disciplinary teams of physicists, computer scientists, data scientists, and applied mathematicians, and the stable, consistent, long-term support of these teams.
