Computer Facilities

The Computing Equipment

computerlab.jpgThe Atmospheric Science group operates a server room with 8-10 racks of general purpose computing and research-project specific hardware, including Beowulf clusters, large memory  systems, and storage arrays.  They are available for use by students and faculty in the program. The systems generally share a common software environment with custom compiled discipline-specific software and are used to run models and for postprocessing, analysis, and archival of model output and other data. Further, a new high-performance campus computing cluster (Agri) with over 1500 processors and 80 TB of disk space has been recently built to support research in climate and weather modeling.

In addition to our HPC facilities there are computer labs in Hoagland Hall 151 and 124.

The administrative support for these systems is handled by Metro IT.  Please contact metroit@ucdavis.edu with any questions.
