One of the interior walls of the containers looks like computing racks of our high performance computing system. The research carried out by DKRZ employees and scientific users of DKRZ is symbolically depicted by plans, photographs, pictures, visualizations as well as journal papers and notes on a white board. On a touch screen monitor, visitors can interactively choose between several visualizations of climate simulations. These were carried out with the climate model MPI-ESM for the CMIP-simulation on the DKRZ supercomputer.

Further information of the contribution  "climate research" is found on the website of the German pavilion at the Expo exhibition in Milano 2015.
