This section lists short description and access/documentation details for the specific Scientific Communities Service Modules provided by the VI-SEEM Scientific Application Environment and the computational resources which support them.
Climate Scientific Community
Digital Cultural Heritage Scientific Community
Life Sciences Scientific Community
Climate and weather forecast models are large community codes that were developed over long periods of time by large international user communities. All models below are free to use for research purposes and some are available open-source. EMAC requires a license, which is free of charge. A number of more specialized models are used in some communities.
|Climate Supported Software Modules|
Climate and Weather forecasting models are clearly the computational focus of this user community, however,other software related to data analysis and visualization is also used. Examples for popular free and/or open source visualization software are:
- The Grid Analysis and Display System (GrADS) is an interactive desktop tool that is used for easy access, manipulation, and visualization of earth science data.
- ParaView is a multi-platform data analysis and visualization application. ParaView users can quickly build visualizations to analyse their data using qualitative and quantitative techniques.
- FERRET is an interactive computer visualization and analysis environment designed to meet the needs of oceanographers and meteorologists analysing large and complex gridded data sets.
The user community employs a number of codes and models which are summarized in the table below. These codes and tools are integrated into the VRE providing user friendly access to the groups in the SEEM region.
|Cultural Heritage Supported Software Modules|
In addition to the list given this table, the project partner SESAME is supporting a number of software and applications for data analysis for current and future needs, associated with Cultural Heritage, such as OMNIC, Unscrambler, Igor, PyMCA, IFEFFIT, FEFF, WINXAS, Matlab, PEAKFI.
The Life Sciences Research Community in the SEEM region is using a variety of codes and tools to simulate the processes under investigation.
