IN007:
Architecture and Testbed for Earth/Space Science Cyberinfrastructures





Session ID#: 25626

Session Description:
Past decades' cyberinfrastructure investments on Earth and Space sciences have accumulated a large amount of assets including data, tools, systems, expertise, and communities for tackling the increasingly complex challenges we are facing, such as climate change. While these assets have their own specific capabilities, their integration in a cohesive service oriented fashion would enable bigger impact and advance science. Leveraging the latest advanced information technologies, such as cloud computing, would help us systematically address the big data challenges in geosciences. Architectural studies, integration and testing are critical to foster reuse and integration of existing data and capabilities to address critical science questions including but not limited to:

1. Existing system architectures for Earth and space systems.

2. Integrating, bridging data systems using novel architectures.

3. System integration and test approaches, environments, and practices.

4. Global, regional and local conceptual architectures.

5. Latest architecture based on cloud computing and big data.
