NCI Guidelines Projects

NCI organises the members along projects. The project codes have the form a12, aa1 or a name. These different forms design projects with different purposes:

Project code Description
a12 These are compute projects. They receive compute time allocations and can be used to run simulations, analyses or any code in batch mode.
aa1 These are data projects. NCI is more than a supercomputer providing High Performance Computing capabilities. It also hosts a large amount of datasets. There are all kinds of datasets at NCI: replica of international datasets (both public and under licence), published datasets from Australian institutions with either public or restricted access. The aim is to avoid duplications of datasets on the system, please do not download data to your own space before checking for central resources.
name These are software projects. They enable to manage access to resources for people using a specific software only. E.g. access and cable groups.

The major projects used at the Centre are:

Project code Purpose Lead CI
v45 Extra-tropics variability compute project Andy Hogg
w35 Drought compute project Claire Carouge
w40 Extreme rainfall compute project Todd Lane
w42 Extreme rainfall compute project Abhnil Prasad
w48 Tropical variability compute project Dietmar Dommenget
w97 Heatwaves compute project David Karoly
hh5 Share /g/data storage across the Centre Claire Carouge
ua8 Centre-produced published datasets Paola Petrelli

There are a lot of useful datasets for the Centre's users. These projects aren't listed here as the list is changing regularly. Please refer to our wiki Data Services section or the | NCI data catalogue to find datasets hosted at NCI.
