REQUESTING COMPUTING TIME AT NASA
If you are a NASA-sponsored scientist or engineer, computing time is available to you at the High-End Computing (HEC) Program's NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Facility and NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
- 07.28.15 - New Animation Shows Millions of Earth Observations for Forecasting
- More than 5 million observations accumulate every 6 hours to drive weather forecasts run by NASA’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
- 07.21.15 - Scientists Link Earlier Melting of Snow to Dark Aerosols
- NASA researchers ran a climate model at the NCCS to examine how light-absorbing aerosols can darken snow and accelerate melting.
- 07.17.15 - Pleiades is Now 6th Most Powerful Supercomputer in the U.S.
- The computing power of Pleiades, NASA's foremost supercomputer, jumped nearly 21 percent after a series of upgrades.
- 06.29.15 - Computational Science and Data Visualization Take the Spotlight in New Solar Superstorms Documentary
- A 24-minute, high-resolution science documentary about the dynamics of the Sun features data-driven visualizations from science work done on NASA’s Pleiades and NCSA’s Blue Waters supercomputers.
- 06.25.15 - New NASA Supercomputer Model Shows Planet Making Waves in Nearby Debris Disk
- The NCCS supercomputer hosted a simulation of the planet and debris disk around the nearby star Beta Pictoris revealing that the planet's motion drives spiral waves throughout the disk, a phenomenon that causes collisions among the orbiting debris.
