Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
To reduce the time and effort required by scientists to download and reformat data from numerous data providers, the NCCS has partnered with atmospheric reanalysis centers (NASA, NOAA, EMCWF, and JMA) and the CLIVAR Global Synthesis and Observations Panel (GSOP) to reprocess atmosphere and ocean reanalyses into CMIP5-compliant format and made them available to scientists through ESGF and THREDDS. An atmosphere ensemble (Multiple Reanalysis Ensemble) has been generated and published. Hourly surface temperature combined with Climatic Research Unit datasets have been published in the Collaborative REAnalysis Technical Environment (CREATE) project in ESGF.
The NCCS developed CREATE-V, a web based visualization tool that allows scientists to explore variables, dates, and levels and to visualize the data side by side to identify features for future study. Aerosol forecast data from the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) has been added to CREATE-V. GIS services for reanalyses datasets are now coming online.
A server-side analytics tool, Earth Data Analytics Service (EDAS), utilizes Scala and Spark to provide the ability to process CREATE data using NCCS compute resources without downloading the data.
