BCube

To address complex Earth system issues such as climate change and water resources, geoscientists must work across disciplinary boundaries, which requires them to access data outside of their fields. This award brings together an internationally recognized team of geo- and social-scientists, cyberinfrastructure experts and educators to explore how expert systems can mediate interactions and improve access between scientific fields. The initial focus is on hydrology, oceans, polar and weather, with the intent to make the technology applicable and available to all the geosciences. The team’s social scientists and educators will research how technology can improve knowledge exchange between scientific communities.

BCube plenary

Submitted by Francoise Pearlman on November 8, 2014 - 9:34pm

The BCube plenary meeting will be hosted at Rutgers University on November 10 through 12, 2014. The focus of the meeting is to review progress to date (including demonstration of the brokering and cawler capabilities), and confirm the path forward for the second year of the project. A draft atgenda for the meeting is attached.

Science Scenarios for BCube - a work in progress

Submitted by Francoise Pearlman on May 5, 2014 - 1:16pm

The BCube science scenarios are a key element in providing an environment for demonstrating the Broker and Crawler capabilities, benefits, and challenges. The work is currently progressing through the first of 3 phases of increasing complexity.

Phase 1: each user scenario focuses on the scientists’ own research area.

Phase 2 will involve collaboration on scenarios within a domain, bringing together multiple specialties to assess the efficacy and impact of BCube.
