The science questions of the atmospheric and related science communities continue to be a demanding driver of cyberinfrastructure.  A high level summary of these science drivers coupled with a number of use cases highlight a few of the future directions the Computational and Information Systems Laboratory at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) are focused on. It is an exciting time with lots of data, could ecosystems and changes in hardware architecture that promise to be disruptive but point to many new capabilities.
