"Cloning" a workspace makes another copy of the workspace under your own Billing Project. Cloning creates a completely independent copy of the workspace in which you are the owner and sole user (until you choose to "share" your "clone" with someone else) where you can experiment with code and data without running the risk of affecting a group workspace. Cloning is useful if you want to run computations in a workspace where you only have "read access." Cloning a Featured Workspace that covers the research tasks you want to do, for example, is one way to jump into using Terra (without writing your own scripts or notebooks).
