NCAR computational scientists are encouraged to submit requests for the next round of NCAR Strategic Capability (NSC) projects to run on the Yellowstone system. The deadline for submissions is March 2, 2015.
NSC project allocations target large-scale activities that directly relate to one or more specific priorities in the new NCAR strategic plan. Requests that address the grand challenges in the Path Forward, including the development of global models with limited-area higher-resolution grids and the use of data assimilation techniques and statistics with model development and verification, are especially encouraged.
NSC projects must be technically ready to begin production runs starting May 1, 2015, and should be completed within 12 months in most cases. NSC projects requiring more than one year’s allocation must submit continuation requests each year to report progress toward the project’s objectives. An estimated 100 million core-hours will be available for the 2015 projects.
For more information and how to apply, see the NSC allocations documentation at http://www2.cisl.ucar.edu/docs/allocations/ncar/nsc.
Because of the competitive nature of these allocations, labs may have chosen to coordinate submissions from each lab. Potential applicants are encouraged to contact their lab's or division's allocation representative prior to submitting a request.
