To prove I-WRF framework container validity, scaling studies will be performed on science use cases that have been carefully selected to:
- Illustrate key capabilities of the containers and thus require high-throughput simulations and enhanced diagnostic analyses.
- Address key issues within the NSF’s strategic plan, i.e., the “Climate Change Impacts on Wind and Solar Resources” use case addresses an essential element necessary to underpin the energy transition.
- Ensure ample opportunities for both dissemination of our science and also the CS enabling infrastructure, i.e., the “Land Use/Land Cover Change in the US Northeast and Feedbacks to Extreme Weather Events and Societal Impacts” use case is linked to a flagship project under the auspices of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) that is designed to assess the use of regional models in a storyline framework for understanding climate hazards.
