Distributed Computing in Earth Science

Session ID#: 27171

Session Description:
With the scale of computing and Earth Science data volumes increasing rapidly, it has become not just impractical but in fact impossible for scientists to bring the data they need to their computer or to their institution’s data center in most cases. A new paradigm is thus needed: bringing analysis to data rather than bringing data to the analysis code. Technologies to address this problem are emerging at a fastest rate. We propose this session to bring to light some of the most promising technologies out there to stimulate collaboration across projects and foster new ideas. This session covers existing and nascent technologies to provide distributed and remote data analysis and visualization for the Earth Science community.
