Application Scalability and Performance (ASAP) Group

The focus of the Application Scalability and Performance group is on improving the ability of Earth System science to efficiently utilize current and future cyber-infrastructure.  We use a research-based approach to understand application performance and how it maps to computing hardware.  Our applied research agenda addresses real-world computing issues that arise in computationally demanding Earth System science.  We have three focus areas of research that includes scalability and performance of NCAR applications, the efficient use of accelerator technology, and workflow and I/O.
