We are delighted to announce a call for proposals designed to drive innovative climate change research with a focus on computational analysis. In early September, AWS will award grants of free access to supercomputing resources running on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). By providing grants in excess of fifty million core hours via the EC2 Spot Market, AWS intends to accelerate research that will result in an improved understanding of the scope and effects of climate change, and analyses that could suggest potential mitigating actions. Awardees will receive an opportunity to present their progress and early findings at our re:Invent conference in November. Expanding upon our investments in the Open NASA Earth eXchange (OpenNEX), this call will also accelerate the development of open climate data and software resources.
