White Paper Outlines Benefit of Integrated Geoscience Cyberinfrastructure

by Matt Ball on October 20, 2011

EarthCube is an ongoing effort to frame the research benefits of an integrated cyberinfrastructure to house data and information across the geosciences. The group has just released a white paper under the auspices of the Open Geospatial Consortium to outline seven data-intensive and cross-disciplinary science scenarios that would benefit from such a robust and adaptable computing platform.

The seven scenarios are:

  • Landslide Forecasts
  • Understanding the Earth’s Interior
  • Adaptive Sensing and Model-based Feedback Control for an Agricultural Observatory
  • Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning
  • Polar Oceanography and Climate Change
  • Contaminant Transport
  • Integrated Disaster Risk Assessment
The white paper summarizes each scenario and provides details on the common technical and non-technical cyberinfrastructure requirements.
