Computational and Modelling Services (CMS)

Lead Research Organisation: NERC National Ctr for Atmospheric Sci


NCAS-CMS provides information services and support for modelling in the UK Academic Atmospheric Science community. Our services can be broadly divided into 3 areas: a) Numerical Modelling (Development, Maintenance, Support and Training), High Performance Computing (Allocation, Management, Support and Advice), Other Services (Information, tools and utilities. Provide assistance with the provision, management, analysis, and visualisation of data).

Description The Computational Modelling Services has been influential in a number of different areas relating to the UK's atmospheric and polar science community, by:
Supporting high performance computing, and workflow for model runs
Developing tools for manipulating and visualising data
Managing processing and storage allocations on ARCHER, MONSooN, JASMIN and the Research Data Facility
Training users through hands-on modelling workshops
Bug fixing and issue management
Exploitation Route Many of the outcomes are relevant to those engaged in modelling with high-performance computing, data management, and data analysis.

Description This project has provided software engineering support for a large community, many of whom have provided model simulations for the impact community. This submission relates to NCAS' Computational Modelling Services, which support computer simulations for climate, weather and earth-system research in the UK.
