Colloquium - Middleton

ECCR 265

The Earth System Grid: Building a DataGrid for Climate Research
Don E. Middleton
NCAR Scientific Computing Division

The Earth System Grid (ESG) project is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy to address the problems of managing distributed terascale climate model data and the subsequent discovery and access by various communities. Such activities are increasingly exercises in large-scale technology integration that span the Grid world, scientific digital libraries, distributed databases, and new technologies for remote data access. In this presentation we will look at the motivation and goals for these efforts along with some of the strategies and technologies being employed to realize them. Network permitting, we will also make a brief live excursion into the web portal that is being developed for this effort.

The Department holds colloquia throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These colloquia, open to the public, are typically held on Thursday afternoons, but sometimes occur at other times as well. If you would like to receive email notification of upcoming colloquia, subscribe to our Colloquia Mailing List. If you would like to schedule a colloquium, see Colloquium Scheduling.

Sign language interpreters are available upon request. Please contact Stephanie Morris at least five days prior to the colloquium.
