National Data Cloud for Climate (NDC-C) Project Recently Funded by NSF

The project investigates the federation of current computing, data, and networking resources in order to streamline the development of scientific workflows for climate and atmospheric science researchers. The ultimate goal of SPRITE is to contribute to the design of a National Discovery Cloud for Climate (NDC-C), with the overarching purpose of advancing climate-related science and engineering. The proposed research will leverage existing testbeds, including the CASA radar network located in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, as well as several NSF-supported testbeds such as CloudLab, Chameleon Cloud, Open Cloud Testbed, Open Storage Network, and FABRIC. To accomplish these goals, real atmospheric observations obtained from the CASA testbed and National Weather Service radars will be utilized.
