Seven UW Research Projects Garner Use of Cheyenne Supercomputer
Wednesday, September 12, 2018
Seven University of Wyoming research projects, many of which will directly impact Wyoming and the nation, have been chosen to receive computational time and storage space at the supercomputer in Cheyenne. Energy, the atmosphere, watersheds and wind farms are some of the research topics.
UW faculty members head projects that will use the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center (NWSC). Each project was critically reviewed by an external panel of experts and evaluated on the experimental design, computational effectiveness, efficiency of resource use and broader impacts such as how the project involves both UW and National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) researchers; strengthens UW's research capacity; enhances UW's computational programs; or involves research in a new or emerging field.
The Wyoming-NCAR Allocation Panel evaluates the large allocation requests for the use of computational resources at the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center, says Bryan Shader, UW’s co-chair of the panel and a professor of mathematics. The seven projects were granted allocations totaling 95 million core hours.
