NRAO: Run CASA pipeline using XCG (including FG resources)

Project ID
FG-357
Project Categories
Non-Life Science
Completed
Abstract
NRAO and UVa are investigating the use of XSEDE facilities to support calibration, flagging and imaging of Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) data using the Common Astronomy Software Application (CASA) and NRAO developed pipeline processing.
Results of the investigation will inform the necessary modifications to CASA parallel framework and pipeline environment to enable efficient execution on XSEDE systems.
Use of FutureSystems
We will be running CASA jobs on FG resources.
Scale of Use
We will be running these jobs for upto 3-4 months, may be more as the need arises. We will need extra storage for these jobs as jobs will be using input files ranging from 10-100GBs and generating output possibly in that range. We would like our storage quota to be increased to accommodate these jobs.
