About ASCEM: Minimizing Risk; Maximizing Predictability

A Department of Energy project, Advanced Simulation Capabilities for Environmental Management (ASCEM) was formed to create an integrated approach that creates a modeling platform with a high performance computing (HPC) framework and several user application toolsets that together allow full integration between data, simulations, and uncertainty assessment.

Toward Transformational Predictive Capabilities

Goal chart

ASCEM was formed to better meet the challenges of efficiently and cost-effectively minimizing environmental, safety and health risks across the EM complex.  It will develop transformational, high performance computer modeling capabilities to improve our ability to predict the fate and movements of underground contaminants and the degradation of engineered materials that contribute to contaminant release.  ASCEM goals include:
