We apologize for the inconvenience.
CISL Daily Bulletin about the outage.
UPDATE: Fri Aug 21 16:26:34 MDT 2015
The system is back up. All jobs waiting in the queue should start automatically. Thank-you for your patience.
It's not enough to say that you used FNL or GFS or CALIPSO data. The software that produced FNL and GFS analyses and forecasts evolve over time. New parameters or methods are introduced. Bugs are fixed. Satellite processing algorithms similarly evolve.
These changes are often not well documented. For someone else to understand (and possibly reproduce) your work, they need to know exactly which version of the data you used for your work.
As of July 31, 2015, the JMA has relaxed its Terms and Conditions of Use for Japanese 55-year Reanalysis (JRA-55) Products. The main change is that "JMA provides the datasets with no imposition of restrictions regarding the purpose of use and/or redistribution", especially for commercial purposes. This impacts RDA datasets ds628.0, ds628.1, ds628.2, ds628.3 and
ds628.4 (JRA-55, JRA-55C, JRA-55AMIP). The new conditions are as follows:
Three brief presentations are planned:
Accessing RDA collections from Yellowstone: Grace Peng (CISL/DSS)—A large subset of NCAR/CISL Research Data Archive (RDA) dataset collections can be accessed directly from the GLADE file spaces on Yellowstone. This presentation will provide an overview of the RDA resources and tools, including metadata access and subsetting services, that are available to Yellowstone users.
Simple “command file” syntax for task parallelism: Dick Valent (CISL/USS/CSG)—By using command file syntax to exploit characteristics of your workflow, you may be able to achieve task parallelism to make more efficient use of your Yellowstone allocation and reduce time to solution. Command file syntax can be used in forms from simple to complex. Dick will present the simplest form of command file.
Real-time, ensemble forecasting using CISL resources: Ryan Sobash (MMM)—A daily, real-time, ensemble forecasting system has been running at NCAR since late March using Yellowstone and other CISL resources. Ryan will talk about some unique computing challenges this type of system poses, solutions developed to maintain reliability and timeliness, and the development of an ensemble visualization system and website (http://ensemble.ucar.edu) to view the forecasts.
All Yellowstone users are welcome. If you plan to attend in person, please sign up here to give us an idea of how many participants to expect.
