Dear colleagues,

You are cordially invited to submit an abstract to session #IN033
"Enabling Cloud Applications for Earth Science Data" to be held at the
American Geophysical Union meeting December 10-14, 2018 in Washington

Session description:
     The ongoing body of Earth observations and model outputs
comprises highly diverse datasets that span orders of magnitude in
files sizes as well as in spatial and temporal extent and resolution.
Assembling and computing on multiple sources and types of these data
is therefore difficult, yet is increasingly necessary for
understanding and supporting decisions about changing environmental
     This session seeks papers on the technical challenges and applied
use of Cloud computing for Earth science modeling, simulation,
reprocessing, intercomparison, analysis, product generation, and
decision support. Submissions are welcomed on topics such as
efficiently transferring, synchronizing, and validating data in the
Cloud; approaches for discovery, organization, integration, or
semantic linking of datasets in the Cloud; management of cloud
instances; case studies demonstrating the benefit (or not) of Cloud
computing; successful applications of Cloud computing to support
decision-making; and other relevant subjects.

Conveners: Jeff de la Beaujardiere (NOAA), Rich Signell (USGS), Mike
Little (NASA), Ken Casey (NOAA).

This was a very successful topic last year, with 2 oral and 1 poster
session, so we look forward to receiving many abstracts! Feel free to
forward this announcement to your collaborators.
