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).
- 08.09.19 - NASA, NOAA Team Up In Effort To Study Impact Of Wild Fires On Air Quality
- Using satellite, airplane, and ground instrument data, models hosted on the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) Discover supercomputer are tracking smoke that’s drifting across the country.
- 08.05.19 - Air Pollutant Forecasts Using the NASA GEOS-CF Model: Global Modeling Assessment of Pollutants During Wildfires
- The May and June 2019 wildfires that occurred in Alberta, Canada led to increased smog, which resulted in air quality warnings issued in that region. Running at the at the NCCS, GEOS-CF was able to simulate in near real-time how these fires impacted the change in pollutant concentrations by using satellite observations to constrain fire emissions.
- 08.05.19 - Field Campaigns on Two Coasts Benefit from GMAO and NCCS Forecast Support
- Spring 2019 field campaigns on North America’s West and Gulf Coasts benefited from substantial forecast support by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) and NCCS.
- 07.19.19 - GMAO Research Brief: Saildrone Baja Field Campaign: A Comparison of Surface Meteorology with GEOS Products
- Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) researchers compared data from a saildrone, an unmanned surface vehicle carrying a comprehensive suite of instruments, to GEOS-FP and MERRA-2 near-surface meteorology and water temperatures datasets produced at the NCCS.
- 07.15.19 – Tunguska Revisited: 111-Year-Old Mystery Impact Inspires New, More Optimistic Asteroid Predictions
- NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) researchers modeled more than 50 million asteroid impact scenarios to reveal the most likely type of event that devastated Russia’s Tunguska region in 1908—the largest asteroid impact witnessed by modern humans. Their findings, reported in this month’s special issue of the journal Icarus, helped determine the average frequency of such events.
- 07.03.19 - How Scientists Used NASA Data to Predict Appearance of July 2 Eclipse
- Using data from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, Predictive Science Inc. ran a model over roughly two days on the Pleiades supercomputer at the NAS Division.
