Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

 

As the RCN draws to a close, this community white paper on "The Landscape of High-Performance and Distributed Computing in Polar Science" analyzes the state-of-play along these three dimensions. Broad community comments are now being solicited to ensure a diversity of voices are fully considered in the report. 

The NSF funded Polar Computing Research Coordination Network (http://polar-computing.org; NSF#1542110) was tasked with analyzing opportunities and barriers in the uptake of high-performance & distributed computing for polar science. Specifically the charge of the RCN was to: (i) Identify opportunities for, and barriers to, greater uptake of High-Performance and Distributed Cyberinfrastructure by polar sciences, (ii) Ensure that plans and designs for new and existing NSF-funded cyberinfrastructure efforts are cognizant of the needs of the Polar Science community, and (iii) Understand how best to educate a new generation of polar scientists in the skills needed to realize the opportunities and potential of HPDC.
