Oct. 8 — The scope and depth of research at the University of Wyoming will reach unprecedented levels with the opening of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)-Wyoming Supercomputing Center (NWSC).
Located in the North Range Business Park near Cheyenne, the NWSC contains some of the world's most powerful supercomputers dedicated to improving scientific understanding of climate, severe weather, air quality and other vital atmospheric science and geoscience topics.
The center also houses a premier data storage and archival facility that holds irreplaceable historical climate records and other information.
The NWSC supercomputer ranks among the world's top 25 for speed, putting UW researchers and students on the cutting edge of research related to critical Earth system processes such as computational science, energy production, carbon sequestration, space weather and oceanography.
Approximately 75 million core hours per year will be reserved for UW researchers and their collaborators at the facility. Research time and use -- focused on computationally or data intensive earth system science -- will be allocated by the Wyoming-NCAR Resource Advisory Panel (WRAP).
