The User Services Section (USS) works with CISL users, managing the processes by which they get access to CISL computing and storage resources, managing and supporting the user environment on those resources, and providing advanced computational consulting services.

Allocations

USS manages the allocations process for the Climate Simulation Lab, university, and NCAR user communities. Our allocations pages provide details on the various opportunities that are available.

User support

USS coordinates efforts to review CISL's cross-cutting user support workflows from the users' perspective and ensure that they operate as efficiently and conveniently as possible. These cross-cutting areas include allocations; user creation and set-up; user-oriented monitoring; self-help and documentation; user support; and accounting.
