Cimate Prediction dot com

The Oxford E-Science Centre climateprediction.com project (OeSC-CPDC) is designed to provide the core computer science research and development necessary for a fully global implementation of the climateprediction.com project, a NERC-funded initiative demonstrating the use of distributed computing for global climate research. The focus of the OeSC-CPDC project is the development of server and database management tools and expertise applicable to large-scale computational modelling tasks making use of distributed computing. The overall aims of OeSC-CPDC are: To develop the tools and expertise necessary to exploit the opportunities of distributed computing to undertake major computational modelling tasks, generating petabytes of output data. The key novel computational challenge is to develop rapidly scalable server and archive management solutions to allow us to accommodate a necessarily unpredictable level of public demand.; To develop tools and expertise to analyse large distributed datasets, including data on machines connected by variable band-width connections.; To support the development and management of climateprediction.com in order to facilitate our climate science objectives and provide a testing ground for the applications.
