Please note that this page is under construction. We are documenting the 240-node cluster maya that will be available after Summer 2014. Currently, the 84-node cluster tara still operates independently, until it becomes part of maya at the end of Summer 2014. Please see the 2013 Resources Pages under the Resources tab for tara information.

The UMBC Atmospheric Lidar Group ( use remote sensing techniques from the ground and space to observe air quality in the US. The cluster will be used for data processing and model runs which calculate the radiative transfer properties of gases, clouds and aerosols at a wide range of frequencies from the ultraviolet through the microwave region.
