2 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 2 November 3, 2010 Overview

3 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 3 November 3, 2010 What is NetCDF NetCDF is a set of software libraries and machine-independent data formats that support the creation, access, and sharing of array- oriented scientific data. Uses HDF5 as data storage layer. Also provides read-only access to some HDF4, HDF5 archives. Parallel I/O for high performance computing. Developed and maintained by Unidata at UCAR

4 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 4 November 3, 2010 Who uses NetCDF? NetCDF is widely used in University Earth Science community. Used for Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) data sets. Used by NASA and other large data producers. Used for NEXRAD and CASA radar data (moments)

5 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 5 November 3, 2010 NetCDF Example 5 float Reflectivity(Radial, Gate) ; Reflectivity:Units = "dBz" ; float Velocity(Radial, Gate) ; Velocity:Units = "MetersPerSecond" ; float SpectralWidth(Radial, Gate) ; SpectralWidth:Units = "MetersPerSecond" ; float DifferentialReflectivity(Radial, Gate) ; DifferentialReflectivity:Units = "dB" ; float DifferentialPhase(Radial, Gate) ; DifferentialPhase:Units = "Degrees" ; float CrossPolCorrelation(Radial, Gate) ; CrossPolCorrelation:Units = "Unitless" ; float NormalizedCoherentPower(Radial, Gate) ; NormalizedCoherentPower:Units = "Unitless" ; float SpecificPhase(Radial, Gate) ; SpecificPhase:Units = "DegreePerKm" ; float HPropagationPhase(Radial, Gate) ; HPropagationPhase:Units = "Radians" ; float VPropagationPhase(Radial, Gate) ; VPropagationPhase:Units = "Radians" ; int GateFlags(Radial, Gate) ; GateFlags:Units = "BitField" ; float CorrectedReflectivity(Radial, Gate) ; CorrectedReflectivity:Units = "dBZ" ; float CorrectedDifferentialReflectivity(Radial, Gate) ; CorrectedDifferentialReflectivity:Units = "dB" ;

6 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 6 November 3, 2010 OpeNDAP Client for NetCDF OPenDAP (http://www.opendap.org/) is a widely supported protocol for access to remote data Defined and maintained by the OPenDAP organization Designed to serve as intermediate format for accessing a wide variety of data sources. Client is now built into netCDF C library.

7 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 7 November 3, 2010 Local Data Manager (LDM) LDM software acquires data and shares them with other nodes Data product is treated as a opaque unit, thus nearly any data can be relayed LDM can handle data from: –National Weather Service "NOAAport channel 3" data streams –NEXRAD radar data –lightning data from the National Lightning Detection Network –GOES satellite imagery

8 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 8 November 3, 2010 LDM Features User configurable –execute an arbitrary program with the data product as input Supports distributed processing –Data ingest functions can be separated from storage and use functions –LDM servers may be configured to relay subsets of data among themselves, distributing the storage and processing around the network. Extensible –New decoders can be added easily Event-driven –Handles data as it arrives

9 Sponsored by the National Science Foundation 9 November 3, 2010 Demo Data Flow Dynamic end-to-end Nowcasting –Mapping Nowcast Workflows onto GENI Archival Storage Radar Nodes raw live data Upstream LDM feed archived netcdf data archived netcdf data Nowcast Processing aggregated multi-radar data aggregated multi-radar data Post to Web Nowcast images for display NetCDF over LDM NetCDF over LDM LDM server Storage NetCDF over LDM NetCDF over LDM LDM server Merge NetCDF over LDM NetCDF over LDM LDM server Nowcasting
