Our current work consists of a mix of data processing, statistical/empirical downscaling, simple earth system modeling, climate modeling with fully-couple ocean-atmosphere GCMs, statistical analysis (MCMC, distributing fitting, etc.), emulation, and a limited amount multi-objective optimization. SCRiM cyberinfrastructure resources are split across two facilities, Penn State’s Institute for Cyberscience Advanced CyberInfrasture (ICS-ACI) research computing center and the Penn State Department of Meteorology (managed by Chuck Pavloski). This document focuses on the Meteorology-hosted resources; ICS-ACI resources are described in a separate document.
woju.scrim.psu.edu), a Silicon Mechanics iServ R420 system with four 8-core 2.2 GHz Xeon E5-4620 processors and 256 GB RAM; primarily for data processing and general interactive use
napa.scrim.psu.edu), a six-node, 96-core cluster; each node is a Silicon Mechanics iServ R331.v4 system with two 8-core 3.3 GHz Xeon E5-2667v2 processors and 256 GB RAM; targeted at small-scale parallel computing tasks
mizuna.scrim.psu.edu), a Dell PowerEdge R710 system with two 6-core 2.4 GHz Xeon E5645 processors and 120 GB RAM; supports various web services and also provides compute capacity for non-SCRiM projects
/mizuna/s0, a 146 TB RAID60 filesystem (via Silicon Mechanics Storform D59J.v2 with 44 4-TB drives; attached to mizuna)
/woju/s0, a 219 TB RAID60 filesystem (via Silicon Mechanics Storform D59J.v2 with 44 6-TB drives; attached to woju)
/mizuna/s1, a 262 TB RAID60 filesystem (via Silicon Mechanics Storform D59J.v3 with 44 8-TB drives; attached to mizuna); this storage is targeted for synergistic projects external to SCRiM, including PIAMDDI and Dairy CAP.
