Our research makes extensive use of local and national 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 2,724 processing cores (mostly Intel Xeon E5-based), 11.3 TB of RAM, and 738 TB of RAID storage. In late 2021, with funding from an NSF award on which Prof. Evans was a co-principal investigator, mortimer will be upgraded with another 1,000+ processing cores, 6+ TB of RAM, and 1.1+ PB of RAID storage. 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 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.
