Software chains for environmental applications
The objective of the Clime project lies in the participation to the design and realization of software chains for impact assessment and environmental crisis management. Such software chains put together static or dynamic databases, data assimilation systems, forecast models, processing methods for images and environmental data, complex visualization tools, scientific workflows ...
The Clime project is currently building such a system for air pollution modelling: Polyphemus (see Internet page http://www.enpc.fr/cerea/polyphemus ), which architecture is specified to account for the data requirements (e.g. various raw data nature and sources, data preprocessing) and the different usages of an air quality model (e.g. forecast, data assimilation, ensemble runs).
