Support the vision of Earth Science research as a community enterprise and provide building blocks for the Earth Science Collaboratory. Leverage the evolving technology landscape to design an architecture for scalable collaboration
Collaborations can scale from individuals sharing science resources, to sharing within groups such as science mission teams, to sharing with the entire science community.
Design and build software components that fit the way researchers currently perform scientific analysis.
These new components should work as part of researchers’ current analysis tools.
