Spirit of adventure: Mountain winds, clouds & flying through the worst of it. An NCAR Explorer Series talk by Vanda Grubisic, Director EOL

Ever wondered why it is so windy in Boulder? Or why it gets bumpy flying over and downwind of the Rocky Mountains? Mountains exert a strong influence on the atmosphere, affecting nearby weather and generating their own climate. To learn how and why some of the strongest winds on Earth form, scientists have long used gliders, powered aircraft, and other research platforms to collect data in very strong wind and turbulence conditions generated by airflow over mountains.

Cybersecurity Partnership Initiative Workshop

Federal agency contract requirements are changing to require baseline evidence of cybersecurity and privacy controls. All UCAR/NCAR/UCP Staff with an interest in cybersecurity regulations and Federal guidance for cybersecurity controls, and/or NIST recommended best practices for cybersecurity, are invited to participate in the October 12th presentations in CG1 auditorium, and October 13th workshop in FL2 Small Seminar Room. 

Seminar on communication/computation overlap in MPI applications October 12 at NCAR

NCAR postdoctoral researcher Alessandro Fanfarillo will present “Myths and reality of communication/computation overlap in MPI applications” at 3 p.m. MDT on Thursday, October 12, in the Mesa Lab Main Seminar Room. Overlapping communication with computation will be more important than ever on future exascale architectures, Fanfarillo says, because of high data transfer and synchronization costs and the need to scale applications on billions of cores.
