NSC allocation requests are due March 12

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 March 12. NSC allocations target large-scale projects lasting one year to a few years that align with NCAR’s scientific priorities and strategic plans. CISL has available for allocation up to 250 TB of GLADE project space (in aggregate) for the Spring 2019 NSC projects. This space is tied to the one-year duration of the projects. Longer-term storage plans for NSC project data in Campaign Storage or HPSS should be coordinated with the requester's lab(s). The data management plan section in your NSC request document should describe the arrangements made with your lab.

The NSC Panel is scrutinizing storage requests much more closely because of the rapidly growing scale of the data generated and constraints on the available storage within the CISL environment. Be sure to review the guidance on the updated instruction page before preparing your submission.

For information, see NCAR Strategic Capability (NSC) projects. Please contact cislhelp@ucar.edu if you have any questions about this opportunity.
