Research Cyberinfrastructure for Global Change Studies


Abstract:
In the global change area, the volume of and the variety of accumulated observation and simulation data are expanding rapidly, creating challenges for the archiving, analyzing and sharing. To address these issues, this paper suggests four research strengths towards a research cyberinfrastructure in this area: scientific data, research process, interdisciplinary study, and national and international collaboration. Research on these aspects will lead to an integrated conceptual data model, an integrated research process model, a data processing module library, a data analysis service library, and a tree of standards and specifications. A research pilot project of GlobalChangeOne is highlighted to demonstrate the feasibility and the advantages of the proposed research roadmap. This research is very promising in facilitating the interdisciplinary studies and accelerating the scientific insights in the global change area, and in promoting the establishment of an integrated international platform for global change studies and sustainable development research.

Key words:global change,sustainable development,cyberinfrastructure,interdisciplinary study,research efficiency
