Delivering high-end computing systems and services to NASA's aeronautics, exploration, science, and space technology missions.
REQUESTING COMPUTING TIME AT NASA
If you are a NASA-sponsored scientist or engineer, computing time is available to you at the High-End Computing (HEC) Program's NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Facility and NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
- 06.13.18 – New and Improved Way to Find Baby Planets
- New work from an international team of astronomers used archival radio telescope data to develop a new method for finding very young extrasolar planets. The research leveraged computing resources at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Division.
- 05.29.18 – Recent Decline in Lower Stratospheric Ozone Attributed to Circulation Changes
- Studies with the MERRA-2 reanalysis show that transport changes between 1998 and 2016 most likely caused ozone in the extratropical lower stratosphere to decline. MERRA-2 runs at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS).
- 05.02.18 - Creating a Computing Center That Can Solve Science’s Most Complex Problems
- Fueled by over 2 megawatts of power and cutting-edge equipment from the NCCS, the Virginia Tech Biocomplexity Institute's new data center is ready to help collaborators address issues ranging from disasters to disease outbreaks.
- 04.26.18 – Lunar Swirl Features Reproduced by Modeling Solar Wind Standoff
- Researchers at the Institute for Modeling Plasma, Atmospheres and Cosmic Dust (IMPACT) at the University of Colorado Boulder, used NASA's Pleiades supercomputer to develop the first 3D simulations to disentangle the movement of ions and electrons as the solar wind interacts with lunar magnetic anomalies.
- 04.26.18 - Stratospheric Intrusion-Influenced Ozone Air Quality Exceedances Investigated in the NASA MERRA-2 Reanalysis
- NASA's MERRA-2 Reanalysis is an ideal candidate for the scientific studies of stratospheric intrusions since it is such a high-resolution global dataset and also assimilates both ozone and meteorological observations. MERRA-2 runs at the NCCS.
- 04.16.18 – Tracking El Niño
- NASA Goddard's Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) combined satellite observations with model data to recreate the 2015-2016 El Niño in 3D. The GMAO computed the synthesis at the NCCS.
