The third SC10 technological thrust area, data-intensive computing, will focus on innovative research and solutions for managing data across distributed HPC systems, especially hardware and software requirements for effective data transfer. One of the science drivers for the data thrust area for SC10 is the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) project. The LSST system will produce a six-band wide-field deep astronomical survey of over 20,000 square degrees of the southern sky using an 8.4-meter ground-based telescope, transferring >15 terabytes (TB) of data. Another large data sharing science group is the CAPS project aimed to develop and demonstrate techniques for the numerical analysis and prediction of high-impact local weather and environmental conditions. CAPS conduct a broad-based program of basic and applied storm-scale research, and its Advanced Regional Prediction System (ARPS) is used worldwide. A third group with large data sharing requirements is the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) project.
