CCR cluster downtime is scheduled for Tuesday 27 July 2021. CCR resources (Globus, UB-HPC, submit) will be unavailable. Details: close

GHub tool users: please note that these tools are currently being moved to Debian10 containers, and may not run as expected: cmctgm; cmcthistplot; crevasseoib; gisplot2. Thanks for your patience! close

Datasets at CCR

These GHub datasets are stored at University at Buffalo CCR, available for computations staged on the computing cluster and accessible using Globus APIs and portal.

Datasets on UB Thule server

TODO: what datasets are on Thule and what should be described here? (Disregard the links below, they are placeholders only)

Presently evident on, there are the ISMIP6 model data with small grid sizes (thus these are the largest files); there are also some ICESat2, MERRA-2, ATM data--should any of these be exposed to users? Are they novel datasets or mostly stashed there for local use?
