Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "ClimateProposal" by ChrisMattmann
Date Sat, 26 Jan 2013 07:27:07 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "ClimateProposal" page has been changed by ChrisMattmann:

  RCMES is currently supporting a number of recognized climate projects of (inter-)national
significance. In particular, RCMES is supporting the [[|U.S.
National Climate Assessment (NCA) activities]] on behalf of NASA's contribution to the NCA;
is working with the [[|North American Regional Climate Change
Assessment Program (NARCCAP)]]; and is also working with the International [[|Coordinated
Regional Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX)]]. 
  === Proposal ===
- The What is CLIMATE, and what are we proposing to do?
+ We propose to transition the RCMES software community, which includes developers of the
RCMET and RCMED software, along with users of RCMES in the CORDEX project across a variety
of academic institutions, scientists helping to improve the RCMES metrics, and visualizations,
and regridding algorithms, packagers making RCMES easier to install, and scientists helping
to lead some of these international projects that are already using RCMES. 
+ We have been working on the RCMES project since 2009 funded initially by the American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) project out at NASA, and then branching out into other sources
of support and sustainability (NASA; NSF, etc. -- see the [[|acknowledgements
section on the RCMES website for a full list of supporting U.S. and international partners).

+ With the existing RCMES community at Apache, we will also work to encourage other climate
software projects e.g., Open Climate GIS, elements of the Earth System Grid Federation, other
NASA climate projects funded under the Computational Modeling, Algorithms and Cyberinfrastructure
(CMAC) to contribute to the Open Climate Workbench here at Apache.
+ RCMED is a Big Data project that combines several underlying Apache software -- OODT, Tika,
Hadoop, HIVE, and Sqoop -- and other related data management software. Its primary language
is Java; RCMET, on the other hand, is a Python API, associated set of classes (framework),
set of Python Bottle Web services, and a PHP "Wizard"-based User Interface that leverages
Apache OODT Balance.
  === Background ===
- Where did CLIMATE come from?
+ Ever since the initial ARRA grant, and the work coinciding with bringing OODT to Apache,

  === Rationale ===
  Why bring JPL RCMES and CDX?
