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).
- 04.22.14 - Why Earth Matters to NASA: A Conversation with Harrison Ford
- While filming a segment of Showtime's "Years of Living Dangerously" documentary on climate change, actor Harrison Ford toured the NASA Advanced Supercomputing facility and met with scientists to learn more about how NASA satellite data, research, and technologies are used around the world to better understand and protect Earth.
- 04.10.14 - NASA Simulation Portrays Ozone Intrusions From Aloft
- Ozone high in Earth's atmosphere offers protection from UV rays, but when the gas dips down closer to the ground, it can affect human health.
- 03.26.14 - AeroCom Compares Organic Aerosol Handling in Global Models
- Phase II of the AeroCom project evlauated how 31 different global models handle organic aerosols in the atmosphere, with half now including formation of secondary aerosols from volatile compounds. The NASA Centter for Climate Simulation supported the effort.
- 02.25.14 – Heating Up
- Explore climate model projections of 21st century global temperatures in visualizations from NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio and the NASA Center for Climate Simulation.
- 02.21.14 – NASA's IRIS Spots Its Largest Solar Flare
- NASA's Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) mission, which utilizes the Pleiades supercomputer to carry out numerical simulations, witnessed an M–class solar flare in late January, the largest flare the spacecraft viewed since its launch June 2013
