Register Now for Workshop on Improving Climate Data Management
Registration is now open for the Focused Technical Workshop on Improving
Data Mobility & Management for International Climate Science to be held July
14 - 16 in Boulder, Colo. The workshop is part of a series sponsored by
ESnet and Internet2 and is co-sponsored by Indiana University, the National
Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Today, climate data sets are currently measured on a scale of terabytes, but
within a few years they are expected to be petabytes in size. This data is
generated by various sources, ranging from large-scale climate modeling and
simulations at supercomputing centers to satellites that are constantly
recording and transferring data. Managing this increasing data flow is a
challenge for many climate scientists and data managers.
The workshop, hosted by NOAA, brings together network experts with
scientists in the domain of international climate sciences to discuss their
most pressing network-related issues and requirements. The format is
designed to encourage lively, interactive discussions with the goal of
developing a set of tangible next steps for supporting this data-intensive
Workshop registration is limited to 100 participants. For registration
