GODIVA: Grid for Ocean Diagnostics, Interactive Visualisation and Analysis



GODIVA will use both data Grid and computational Grid facilities to study ocean variability and climate change signals. The Ocean conveyor belt consists of ocean currents which re-distribute cold and warm waters. Climate change signatures over recent decades are contained in subsurface ocean Temperature/Salinity distributions. Satellites and ships provide surface and subsurface observations scattered in space and time. Numerical ocean models allow integration of disparate observations by using data assimilation techniques. The GODIVA GRID will be used to visualise and extract climate change signals from large model data sets which contain the assimilated information from millions of observations gathered over the past 40 years and available in ocean databases.
