Our research makes extensive use of local and national computing and supercomputing resources.

The UWM mortimer supercomputer features 2,724 processing cores (mostly Intel Xeon E5-based), 11.3 TB of RAM, and 738 TB of RAID storage. Mortimer is currently in the process of being upgraded with another 1,000+ processing cores, 6+ TB of RAM, 1.1+ PB of RAID storage, and multiple GPUs. Our group previously 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 through XSEDE (comet, wrangler, jetstream). These resources are primarily used to support collaborative research with investigators at other institutions, although Prof. Evans also uses XSEDE resources for his graduate-level Numerical Weather Prediction course.
