  • A specific goal of these workshops was to gather requirements for EarthCube to be allow scientists to do the science they wanted to do. Each domain end-user workshop developed several science grand challenges or questions that are critical to better understanding our complex Earth system - challenges they envision can be better explored and understood with the help of the collaborative environment EarthCube is seeking to create. This is a wordle that was comprised of all Science Challenges developed in the two dozen workshops. So here you can see that challenges for the geosciences community surround understanding processes, climate change, scales, earth systems, etc. Articulating Cyberinfrastructure Needs of the Ocean Ecosystem Dynamics CommunityHow do different physical, chemical, and biological processes come together to create more complex emergent properties in ocean ecosystems? What are the feedback loops among these processes and how do they give rise to biological, chemical, and genetic diversity in the oceans?
  • Finally on this slide we get to the Test Governance Award, which is the project I work on and have the most knowledge about regarding current efforts.
  • As well as Science Challenges, each workshop developed a list of Technical Challenges. Participants asked to identify key technological challenges they face in data acquisition, comparison, integration, curation, etc. in pursuing key science questions, as well as the desired tools, databases, etc. required. From this wordle, it is clear that the big challenge is DATA (and that should be no surprise to you).
  • This is the same word cloud as the pervious one w/ “data” removedHighlights what is really important when it comes to technical challenges instead of just lumping it all into one big “problem with data” (which is what we always hear). When we dig deeper, we see that the real challenges are with the access, visualization, and tools related to data. Something else that really stands out is the word, Community. Emphasizing that perhaps not all technical challenges, have technical solutions, but social solutions as well. And that really where EarthCube can step in. Engaging the Atmospheric Cloud/Aerosol/Composition Community 6. Supporting modeling and integrated analysis • On-line data integration and analysis services • Tools and services to manage, archive, and disseminate model outputs for facilitating modeling comparison • Sensor-model coupling for facilitating model verification and validation with observation data • Sensor web and models as services
  • Agile – several advisory committee & a development evaluation team – allow us to quickly change course if things aren’t working or we’re not getting the results we want.
  • Need feedback from broad cross-section of geoscientists on their ideas on EarthCube governance, and test how they would react to different externalities (NSF funding, support from university/employer, etc.) through game theory.
