Title Developing an Atmospheric Data Model
Type Research Project
Abstract The Atmospheric Data Model initiative is the result of a working dialog between ESRI and the atmospheric sciences community regarding atmospheric data representation and analysis challenges. Collaboration toward a solution, using the vehicle of a common data model, helps to address the needs of the atmospheric community and provides direction for ESRI software and tool development. Two atmospheric data modeling workshops focused on conceptual design of the atmospheric data model. The manuscript describing atmospheric data model is now in preparation. Current Collaborators: Joe Breman (ESRI) Scott Shipley ( George Mason University / Raytheon) Jennifer Boehnert (RAL/ISSE)

"Because the pathway to sustainability cannot be charted in advance, it will have to be navigated through trial and error and conscious experimentation. The urgent need is to design strategies and institutions that can better integrate incomplete knowledge with experimental action into programs of adaptive management and social learning."
