No Scheduled Downtime:  Yellowstone, HPSS, Geyser_Caldera, GLADE

Monday, October 20, 2014

The CISL User Services Section will hold a one-hour seminar and discussion for Yellowstone users at 11 a.m. Friday, November 7, in the Directors Conference Room at the Mesa Lab (ML215) in Boulder.

The purpose of the seminar is to have supercomputer users share their tips, tools, and best practices for accomplishing computational and analysis tasks. Allison Baker (CISL), Dave Gill (NESL), Sean Santos (NESL), and Dick Valent (CISL/CSG) will share their ideas in brief presentations. Topics will include managing CESM jobs, using WRF on Yellowstone, loading modules with a Python script, and using HTAR to archive files in HPSS.

All Yellowstone users are welcome. Please sign up here to give us an idea of how many participants to expect.

CISL is offering a one-hour class and webcast at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 22, for those who want to learn how to use NCAR Command Language (NCL) effectively in the Yellowstone environment.

Topics will include examining, reading, and writing NetCDF files; doing simple calculations; and creating basic visualizations. Participants will learn how to run NCL from the Yellowstone command line interface and how to submit an NCL script in a batch job. Those who attend should be familiar with basic UNIX/Linux commands, simple NCL file I/O and graphics scripts, and the NetCDF variable model (dimensions, attributes, and coordinate arrays).

You can register to attend in person—at the VisLab in NCAR’s Mesa Lab in Boulder—or via webcast by selecting a link below:
