Theoretical and Empirical Approaches to Data Center User Access Modeling—Bruce Barkstrom, LARC/NASA 1:30 p.m. VII. CES Data System Chapter, Summary of Issues—Frank Wentz/David Sandwell 2:00 p.m. VIII. Charge to Working Groups What investments can be made in the short-term to build a climate research data system? Some specific issues could include the following: EOS data will soon be flowing, and can use those data will be used as a prototype for developing the technologies and actual architectural elements of the long-term archive climate data and products. Are there priorities or suggestions on what would be the most useful place to start? In what interactions would the community be willing to participate? For example, scenarios such as a subset of MODIS products end-to-end flowing from NASA GSFC to NOAA NCDC across a big pipe, testing data compression forms, and data access patterns. Workshop discussions could focus on a particular DAAC/NOAA data center interaction across a range of products, instruments, data centers. What are the priorities for which data sets we should focus on for reprocessing? What are the critical science plans that would determine how often we should reprocess? How do we begin to get a long time series across precursor —POES/GOES-EOS-NPP-NPOESS or get a better handle on the problems? 5:00 p.m. Recess Tuesday, February 8, 2000 8:30 a.m. Plenary Session 9:00 a.m. Breakout Groups 12:00 noon Lunch 1:00 p.m. Breakout Groups 3:00 p.m. Plenary Session
