Tackling climate change with Microsoft Azure

Published on 29th January 2021 by InterEx Group

The UK company SATAVIA used Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform to model the Earth’s atmosphere from as part of their project to tackle climate change caused by aviation. The company aims to prevent 60% of aviation’s impact on climate, which is 2% of all human-induced impact on climate. SATAVIA uses AI and data analytics to study aircraft contrail formation, which occurs when aircraft cruising above 26,000 ft create clouds that can warm the Earth’s atmosphere.

According to Dr Adam Durant, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of SATAVIA, Azure was “vital” to tackling the issue of aviation-induced climate change, because of the platform’s ability to handle scalability, AI tools and large amounts of data. Using their numerical weather prediction model, SATAVIA can generate a ‘digital twin’ of the atmospheric environment from ground-level to top of atmosphere. “Our model performs around 100 algorithmic computations over four billion model cells every 30 seconds for 26 meteorological parameters, generating one quadrillion (1,000 trillion) computations per simulation day – that’s how we define ‘hyperscale’,” says Dr Durant. “We’re delighted to have worked with Microsoft on this test of our ability to scale, demonstrating the incredible scalability and ultra-high-performance provided by Microsoft Azure.”
