Seven UW projects awarded use of NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputer in Cheyenne

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - Seven University of Wyoming projects were chosen to receive computational time and storage space on the local National Center for Atmospheric Research-Wyoming Supercomputer , UW announced yesterday. Many of the projects will apply to Wyoming issues which include wind farm efficiency, aerosol impacts on snowpack and snow melt, and cloud formation. Each project was reviewed critically by an external panel of experts and evaluated on experimental design, computational effectiveness, efficiency of resource use, and other broader impacts. “The projects were granted allocations totaling 42 million core hours. In addition, 6 million core hours were recently awarded to a new faculty member as part of his start-up package,” Bryan Shader, UW’s special assistant to the vice president of research and economic development, and a professor of mathematics said. See full details on these awarded projects online with the University of Wyoming. *Feature photo: Cheyenne LEADS/Pitchengine Communities* #shortgo #news
