“May 4, 2016 — University of Wyoming faculty members have the opportunity to apply for a large allocation to use computational and storage resources at the National Center for Atmospheric Science (NCAR)-Wyoming Supercomputing Center (NWSC) in Cheyenne to support their research in earth systems and atmospheric sciences. Applications are due May 22.
Any request for more than 200,000 core hours is considered a large request. UW’s current share of the NWSC resource is 75 million core hours. This share of core hours will more than double next year. One core hour is the equivalent of running one application on a single computer for one hour. Since October, UW researchers have used 30.5 million core hours and, in February, six projects were allocated 42 million core hours…..” (more)
They could study Lake FUBAR. Or they could modernize studies on the worthiness of salt dome storage caverns. USGS, Sandia Labs … could contact some prof. there to put together a study.
