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 10,000 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.

Sensitivity of Tropical Cyclones to Parameterized Convection in the GEOS-5 Model
A Global Modeling and Assimilation Office study demonstrates that realistic tropical cyclone activity can be simulated in general circulation models with a resolution of about 25 kilometers and that modifications to the convective parametrization can lead to further improvements in realism.
