The NWSC facility is administered by NCAR’s Computational & Information Systems Lab. Comprehensive documentation and assistance with the supercomputing resources powering atmospheric research and the broader geo-sciences community is available at the links below:
The NWSC is the result of a partnership between University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR), the State of Wyoming, the University of Wyoming, Cheyenne LEADS, Wyoming Business Council, Cheyenne Light, Fuel & Power Company. The NWSC is operated by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation.
Mathematical models are tools to describe Earth’s parts, patterns and systems like weather and climate. Using these models to understand and predict how the systems will behave requires some of the most powerful supercomputers in the world, just like the kind we have here at the NWSC.
