The DRIHM project will organize the "Session B1: Research Infrastructures for Integrated Environmental Modeling" in the framework of the "Stream B: Integrated Environmental Modeling" at the 8th International Congress on Environmental Modelling and Software (iEMSs)June 15-19, 2014, San Diego, California, USA

Organizers: Antonio Parodi, Andrea Clematis, Rick Hooper

Description: In order to understand how pressures such as climate change and infrastructure developments impact the environment we need model not just physical, chemical and biological parameters individually, but also how these parameters interact to affect the whole system. Environmental systems couple many natural processes and simulating them accurately demands modeling them in a similar fashion. Integrated environmental modeling seeks to achieve this by assembling collections of linked (model and data) components, supporting different aspects of the combined system.

At the heart of this challenge lies the ability to have easy access to model and data components, assembling them according to recognized standards and facilitating collaboration between the appropriate scientific and ICT communities. This is of particular importance because ICT methods are often aimed at satisfying general needs resulting in a gap between specific modeling chain requirements and available tools.

This session is intended to attract interest and promote discussion between scientists, who develop and use environmental models and data and the ICT communities who typically provide the necessary infrastructure and tools. It accompanies an associated workshop where such modelling and data tools will be demonstrated and discussed.
