Abstract (englisch):
Climate analyses often require the processing of large data from climate model simulations and observation data. Nowadays, researchers download data from climate data archives and try to process those files at their home institutes with local analysis software. But with the growing amount of climate data this is not a feasible solution. With the upcoming climate model simulations projects (e.g. CMIP6) even larger climate institutes and computing centers will not be able to keep all relevant data on one storage system.
Climate processing services can be a valuable contribution to cope with the growing data challenge. A set of climate analyses processing tools can be installed close to the climate data archives. These processing tools are provided as services, which can be accessed via the web. Here, standardized interfaces are important to enable processing services among several institutes interested in climate data. Furthermore a standard processing interface enables the chaining of processes cross-institutional.
Besides sharing the processing services, this gives also the opportunity to share the knowledge (and software) on clim ... mehr
