Climate Simulation Laboratory (CSL) Proposal
The Climate Simulation Laboratory (CSL) at NCAR is a dedicated climate model computing facility that supports the multiagency U.S. Global Change Research Program by providing high-performance computing and data storage systems to support large-scale, long-running simulations of the Earth's climate system, including appropriate model components, that need to be completed in a short calendar period. CSL allocations are made approximately every 18 months.
The U.S. Global Change Research Program is soliciting proposals for the use of the Climate Simulation Laboratory (CSL) computing facilities, beginning April 1, 2011, and continuing through June 30, 2012. The DEADLINE for submitting proposals is December 1, 2010. If you are currently using the CSL and wish to continue using the facility after March 2011, please submit your renewal proposal and a progress report by the December 1, 2010, deadline.
The Community Earth System Model (CESM) is a fully-coupled, global climate model that provides state-of-the-art computer simulations of the Earth's past, present, and future climate states.
CESM is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Administration of the CESM is maintained by the Climate and Global Dynamics Division (CGD) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
