- Modeling in the Field for GPM
- The NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) recently partnered with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center modelers to support ground- and aircraft-based campaigns for the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) satellite mission in two distinct regions of the United States.
- Computer Model Provides a New Portrait of Carbon Dioxide
- An ultra-high-resolution computer model gives scientists a stunning new look at how atmospheric carbon dioxide travels around the globe. The NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) Discover supercomputer hosted the Nature Run simulation, which produced nearly four petabytes of data.
- Changing Discover Hardware Environment
- The NCCS is committed to providing the best possible high performance
solutions to meet the NASA science requirements. To this end, the NCCS
is undergoing major integration efforts over the next several months to
dramatically increase both the overall compute and storage capacity
within the Discover cluster. The end result will increase the total
number of processors by over 20,000 cores while increasing the peak
computing capacity by almost a factor of 3x!
- Ways to Optimize your Slurm Turnaround
- The NCCS is implementing the next phase in the Slurm resource manager
deployment. We have prepared some recommendations to optimize job
turnaround using Slurm that we encourage Discover users to review and
incorporate. Please click on the following link to read more.
