The Molecular Science Computing (MSC) capability supports EMSL's flagship computing resources including:
- Cascade, a supercomputer with theoretical peak performance of 3.4 petaflops, that came online in December 2013,
- Molecular science software programs, including NWChem, and
- Aurora, a 15.8 Petabyte HPSS data storage system.
The MSC provides an integrated production computing environment. EMSL links to external facilities within the Department of Energy, collaborating universities and industry. EMSL supports a wide range of computational activities in environmental molecular research, including benchmark calculations on small molecules, reliable calculations on large molecules and solids, simulations of large biomolecules, large data bioinformatics computations, aerosol climate modeling, and reactive chemical transport modeling.
EMSL employs a forward-looking strategy to maintain leading-edge supercomputing capabilities and encourages users to combine computational and state-of-the-art experimental tools, providing a cross-disciplinary environment to further research.
