Requirements Workshop 2007

This is version 71. It is not the current version, and thus it cannot be edited.

Overview of meeting:

This workshop will involve domain scientists and technologists meeting together to clarify the specific technical needs and requirements of two initial Scientific Use Cases for the REAP Project: one involving the access to and modeling of Sea Surface Temperature Data; and the other involving the monitoring and analysis of real-time land-based environmental sensors over a broad spatiotemporal range. Both Use Cases were chosen to not only address some challenging areas regarding access to and integration of important environmental data, but also to incorporate these into scientific workflows in order to facilitate documentation, replication, and sharing of executable analysis and models.

Oceanographic Use Case for Sea Surface Temperature (SST)

Terrestrial Use Case Investigating Plant-Pathogen Interactions
