2012 Climate Simulation Laboratory Opportunity, due February 20, 2012

January 30, 2012

The U.S. Global Change Research Program is soliciting proposals for the use of the Climate Simulation Laboratory (CSL) computing facilities, beginning August 1, 2012, and continuing through January 31, 2014. The DEADLINE for submitting proposals is February 20, 2012. If you are currently using the CSL and wish to continue using the facility after June 2012, please submit your renewal proposal and a progress report by the February 20, 2012, deadline.

The multi-agency CSL computing facility was established in 1995 and is dedicated to climate modeling in support of the U.S. Global Change Research Program. The CSL provides high-performance computing and data storage systems to support large-scale, long-running simulations of the Earth’s climate system.

This round of CSL allocations will have access to NCAR’s forthcoming petascale Yellowstone system, a 1.55-PFLOPs IBM iDataPlex cluster, as well as its associated storage, data analysis, and visualization resources. For more information about Yellowstone, see the CISL web site (http://www2.cisl.ucar.edu/). Additional information about use of the CSL and updated submission instructions can be found at the CSL web site, http://www2.cisl.ucar.edu/csl/.

If you have questions about this opportunity, please contact David Hart, User Services Manager, 303-497-1234, or email alloc@ucar.edu.  Please share this information with any other colleagues who might be interested. We look forward to hearing from you.
