Overview

Our research makes extensive use of local, campus-wide, and international-level computing and supercomputing resources. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the UWM College of Letters and Science and the National Science Foundation for their contributions to these resources.

The UWM mortimer supercomputer features 1,914 processing cores (mostly 2.50 GHz Intel Xeon E5-based), 7.3 TB of RAM, and 449 TB of RAID storage. Our group has contributed 24 processing cores and 80 TB of RAID storage to mortimer. Our research group uses mortimer for the bulk of our moderately intensive numerical simulations.

Our group’s research has also made and/or currently makes use of national-level resources at NCAR (yellowstone, cheyenne, and HPSS) and XSEDE (comet, wrangler, jetstream). These resources are primarily used to support collaborative research with investigators at other institutions, although PI Evans also makes use of XSEDE resources for his Numerical Weather Prediction graduate-level course.
