NCAR researchers and computational scientists are encouraged to submit requests for NCAR Strategic Capability (NSC) projects to be run on the Cheyenne system. Requests will be accepted through September 13, 2022. These NSC allocations should target large-scale projects lasting one year or to the end of Cheyenne that align with NCAR’s scientific priorities and strategic plans.
You should be aware that the NSC panel is scrutinizing requests for storage resources closely because of the rapidly growing scale of the data generated and constraints on the available storage within the CISL environment. Also, remember that your NSC proposals should now describe the project’s relationship to the NCAR strategic plan.
Note that we will not be taking allocation requests for Derecho until the spring 2023 NSC opportunity.
