Great Lakes Consortium awards time on Blue Waters supercomputer

6 Jul 2017 Urbana-Champaign - The Blue Waters supercomputer at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign benefits the scientific community in innumerable ways. Researchers can use the most powerful high performance computing system for fully open research through a few doorways, including the Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation (GLCPC) allocations.

Member institutions of the GLCPC include universities and colleges, national laboratories, the Southeastern Universities Research Association, educational foundations, and K-12 school districts who are developing educational and workforce development programs to help realize the full potential of petascale computing.

Nine research teams are awarded computational time, storage and support on Blue Waters this year through this peer-reviewed allocation method, including projects that map and model the vegetation of the Great Lakes Basin; simulating the atmosphere during and after a wildfire; and using a framework to look at potential policy responses to climate change. The nine teams will use approximately 4.6 million node hours - about 147 million core hour equivalents - from now until May 31, 2018.

The GLCPC consortium has been part of the Blue Waters project for the past nine years and makes annual peer-reviewed allocations on the Blue Waters supercomputer to research projects from GLCPC member institutions.

The full list of 2017-18 projects and investigators looks as follows:
