We will use HPCF for a new NSF-funded initiative in big data applied to atmospheric sciences and using high-performance computing as a vital tool. The research training consists of instruction in the areas of data, computing, and atmospheric sciences supported by teaching assistants, followed by faculty-guided project research in a multidisciplinary team of participants from each area. Participating graduate students, post-docs, and junior faculty from around the nation will be exposed to multidisciplinary research experiences and have the opportunity for significant career growth.
