    Description
    Workshop poster session

    The 2015 Unidata Users Workshop took place June 22-25 at UCAR's Center Green facility in Boulder, Colorado. The workshop's theme — Data-Driven Geoscience: Applications, Opportunities, Trends, and Challenges — drew participants from across the atmospheric and other geosciences communities. Attendees took part in a series of presentations and hands-on exercises that explored how trends in cloud computing and Python-based workflows affect how scientists interact with and manage ever-growing data volumes.

    Eighteen presenters from the Unidata community shared their insights on incorporating new technologies into scientific workflows across the geosciences. Sessions investigated topics ranging from using python tools to access remote datasets and adding cloud computing resources to data-intensive processes to building literacy in scientific computing and preserving data resources and citations. In many cases, presenters encouraged other participants to follow along with hands-on examples and exercises.

Data

The Unidata Program center makes a wide variety of near-real-time and archive geoscience data and model output available to the university community. See the Data page for an overview of the available data types and access methods.

Real-time Model Output

Data visualization tools available from Unidata and elsewhere allow you to create dynamic displays of past, current, or forecast scenarios. This display shows a dynamically-selected Region of Interest culled from a regional weather model.
