                                                                              WORK PACKAGE 3
                   E-infrastructure shared between Europe and Latin America




  • WP3 - Task 3.3: Additional Applications (Climate in the Grid
    Environment and other forecasting applications)
       – CEDERJ (Leader), UC, UDEC, SENAMHI

       – Volcano Sonifications (Domenico Vicinanza, CERN)
             Currently no definitive method to predict the eruption of a volcano has
              been discovered or implemented yet.
             Scientists monitor
                • seismic waves and the intensity of a specific type of quake
                  (harmonic tremors) in the run up to eruptions.
                • changes in the shape of the volcano or concentrations
                  of gases emitted.

             By correlating spectra and melodies with precise stages of volcanic
              activity we hope to discover a sort of “signature tune” of an imminent
              eruption or earthquake.

  – Climate applications

  • CAM/CCM3 (at SENAMHI)
       – Global Climate Atmospheric Model.
       – This model simulates the evolution of the climate globally at a resolution of
         100-300 km, starting with the present sea surface temperature conditions and
         returns the atmospheric evolution (temperature, humidity, etc.)

  • MM5/WRF (at UdeC)
       – Regional atmospheric model.
       – Over a reduced area (1-10 km), taking boundary conditions of nearest regions

  • SOM (at UC)
       – Data minig clustering algorithm from the CROSSGRID project using MPI.
       – The application maps atmospheric configurations to find weather types


  • They will be run separately be each partner on their own site. After they
    will be run in the Grid in a cascade way:
                           CAM  MM5  SOM

                   E-infrastructure shared between Europe and Latin America




 • EELA is a concrete reality and represents the first step to bridge EU
   and LA in e-Science exploiting GEANT2 and RedCLARA networks.

 • The EELA workplan is very challenging but holds the promise to
   alleviate the digital divide in Latin America.

 • EELA is a part of the global Grid and needs a robust collaboration
   with similar projects

 • EELA is open to all interested project willing to collaborate. Let’s use
   this conference as a very good occasion to get together, discuss
   problems, and identify possible synergies.
