Offer: Unidata Science Gateway JupyterHub Resources Available for Fall 2020 Courses

Jupyterhub

In the spring of 2020, Unidata made an offer of resources through the Science Gateway project in order to facilitate online learning in response to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic. Since that time, nearly three hundred and fifty users — mostly undergraduates in atmospheric science programs — have been able to take advantage of cloud-based resources to access pre-configured computational notebooks for learning and teaching objectives.

For the fall 2020 term, Unidata is once again offering to provide universities (or individual instructors) access to cloud-based JupyterHub servers tailored to the needs of university atmospheric science courses and workshops. By using the Unidata Science Gateway, instructors can add Jupyter notebooks used in their coursework to a dedicated JupyterHub hosted using Unidata’s resources in the NSF Jetstream cloud. Once logged in to the JupyterHub, individual students access pre-configured computing environments that allow them to work with the notebooks interactively, making and saving their own alterations to existing notebooks or creating their own new notebooks.

TDS version 4.6.15 and netCDF-Java library versions 4.6.15 and 5.3.3 Released

The Unidata THREDDS Development Team released updated versions of the THREDDS Data Server (TDS) and netCDF-Java/Common Data Model (CDM) library on June 17, 2020. In addition to feature enhancements, these releases contain a variety of updates to third-party libraries, including security updates. They also address a problem in previous versions that could lead to data returned by some NetcdfSubsetService (NCSS) requests being corrupted. While the circumstances under which the problem occurs are very specific (and rare), because the possibility of data corruption exists the development team strongly recommends these upgrades to anyone using netCDF-Java/CDM or TDS. TDS administrators who are not able to upgrade immediately should disable the NetcdfSubsetService until it is possible to do so.
