Blue Waters Illinois allocations awarded to 26 research teams


Mar 7, 2017

Twenty-six research teams at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have been allocated computation time on the National Center for Supercomputing Application's (NCSA) sustained-petascale Blue Waters supercomputer after applying in Fall 2016. These allocations range from 25,000 to 600,000 node-hours of compute time over a time span of either six months or one year. The research pursuits of these teams are incredibly diverse, ranging anywhere from physics to political science.

NASA Career Award Winner Uses Blue Waters Supercomputer to Mine Crop Yield Data


Sep 22, 2016

A new faculty member at the University of Illinois who received a prestigious NASA Career award is now using the Blue Waters supercomputer on campus to gain new insights into crop yields through satellite data. Assistant professor Kaiyu Guan’s work builds off his previous research with satellite and earth system modeling. Prior to coming to Illinois, his PhD and postdoc work focused mostly on how rainfall and other components of the hydrological cycle control plant growth in tropical forests, savannas and farms.
