LaRC DAAC Risk Mitigation Approach for Hurricane Isabelle
Faced with the probability of encountering strong hurricane force winds and
storm surge and extreme rainfall with associated flooding, the LaRC
Atmospheric Competancy has decided to close down operations of the LaRC
DAAC and to move all data tapes from the archive silos at the DAAC to a
secure facility 50 miles inland from their location.
The ESDIS Project expressed concern regarding the risk of handling and
transporting the tapes and the risk of moving the tapes from (and back
into) the silos. The EOSDIS Maintenance and Development Contractor has
provided guidelines to the LaRC DAACs on preferred methods for packing and
transporting the tapes.
LaRC has not made an estimate of the length of time required to remove,
transport (both ways), reinstall the tapes and restore the silos databases,
but the DAAC may be shutdown for several weeks. The LaRC DAAC Manager has
notified the Principle Investigators of the EOS instruments supported about
the risk mitigation action LaRC is taking.
