Dear Colleague,

Please consider submitting an Abstract to the session "Next Generation 
Distributed Data Access, Diagnostics, and Collaborations for Climate and 
Weather Models (IN-02)" at the 2009 Fall Meeting of the AGU in San 
Francisco (14-18 December 2009).   Please pass this to whom you feel 
might be interested.  *

Note that the submission deadline is 3 September 2009.
Please make your submissions at :
*We have some outstanding presentations already lined up from our 
Invited Authors from NCAR, IMMA/CNR Italy,  NCEP, and NCDC.  We expect 
this to be a popular session and we hope you will consider submitting an 
abstract as well!
*Best regards,
Glenn Rutledge (NOAA/NCDC), Dean Williams (LLNL/PCMDI), Michael Seablom 
(NASA/GSFC), Mark Govett (NOAA/ESRL), and Zoltan Toth (NOAA/NCEP)

IN02:     Next Generation Distributed Data Access, Diagnostics, and 
Collaborations for Climate and Weather Models
See: http://www.agu.org/meetings/fm09/
Sponsor:  Earth and Space Science Informatics
Co-Sponsor:  Atmospheric Sciences

*Description:     This session will help promote high volume access and 
collaboration for next generation NWP, Climate, and Reanalysis Models 
and associated observational data.
Existing gaps to improving model performance and access across the 
weather and climate observational and modeling communities can be 
bridged with a focus on a planned but loosely coupled infrastructure to 
fill and improve user and producer needs with open standards libraries 
and tools.

Abstracts are requested to addressing key aspects of complex scientific 
data in a manner accessible to both climate modelers and to 
non-specialists or particular user communities. Decision makers are 
increasingly seeking information that will help their communities plan 
mitigate and respond to climate variability and change. This session 
will address end-to-end capabilities for multi-model, multi-center 
operational archive and access capabilities, and subsequent generations 
of high-resolution weather and climate models and reanalysis data sets 
from numerical model outputs.

A focus of this session will be on high volume and interoperable access 
and multi-model and ensemble approaches such as 1) the DOE's Earth 
System Grid and the emerging iRODS capability; 2) the WMO THORPEX TIGGE 
Global Interactive Forecast System (GIFS); 3) Distributed climate 
modeling such as the climateprediction.net capability now being proposed 
within NOAA; 4) a proposed National Climate Model Portal and 5) 
interoperable sub-setting and tiling capabilities and model portals 
already in development in many institutions.

This session is hoped to address an avenue for the data provider 
communities to coordinate and bridge vocabulary crosswalks to address 
GEO Societal Benefit Areas (SBA) under the Architecture Implementation 
Plan -2 (AIP-2) to: Reduce Loss of Life and Property from Disasters, 
Understand the Effects of Environmental Factors on Human Health and Well 
Being, Understand, Assess, Predict, Mitigate & Adapt to Climate 
Variability & Change, Protect and Monitor Ocean Resources, Protect and 
Monitor Water Resources, Improve Weather Information, Forecasting, and
