  • Making high-end computational services available to DCO collaborators was identified as a critical issue for addressing DCO’s Decadal Goals. Soon after the DCO was launched, a clear consensus emerged that it should have its own computation center with a dedicated cluster that would enable it to organize and prioritize computational runs for DCO needs, without the long waiting times involved at national facilities. From chemical and physical modeling to genomic analyses, the DCO Computer Cluster can run numerous software packages and scientific programs for theoretical calculations of C-bearing phase structures and properties, geodynamics calculations, thermochemical modeling, and other computations.
