End of the Computing for Sustainable Water project
17 Oct 2012   

Summary
Thanks to the generous contribution of computing power from our members, the Computing for Sustainable Water project has concluded.


World Community Grid is pleased to announce, that thanks to the generous contribution of computing power from our members, the Computing for Sustainable Water project has concluded.

The Computing for Sustainable Water project was launched on April 17, 2012. While it was active, World Community Grid members processed over 24 million results which required nearly 4,200 years of computing power. This work would have taken about 90 years of time using the computing resources available to the researchers at the University of Virginia. Using World Community Grid, this research was completed in less than 6 months.

The next step for the scientists is to analyze the results of this project. They hope to discover which public policies might affect watershed health, publish these findings and possibly apply them to other important watersheds around the world.

You may read about these plans in this forum post by Dr. Gerard P. Learmonth, Sr., lead researcher on the Computing for Sustainable Water project.

If you contributed your runtime to the Computing for Sustainable Water research project, the staff at the University of Virginia, USA wish to express their sincere gratitude to you.

We still need your help with the other active research projects running on World Community Grid! All of these important projects need your computer time. If you had chosen to contribute only to the Computing for Sustainable Water project, please go to your My Projects page to review and update your project selection.
