NetCDF Uncertainty Conventions presented to OGC
On November 30 2011, the UncertWeb netCDF Uncertainty Conventions (netCDF-U) were presented to the Earth System Science Domain Working Group at the OGC Technical Committee Meeting in Bruxelles (see the Publications section for the presentation).
NetCDF-U is based on a generic mechanism for annotating netCDF variables according to the UncertML conceptual model.
NetCDF-U is convention-neutral, in particular it integrates with the netCDF Climate and Forecast Conventions.
The conventions are being improved and consolidated within the relevant OGC Working Groups and the CF-metadata community.
UncertWeb meets with its Advisory Panel
UncertWeb met with six members of its Advisory Panel on the 26th of September 2011 at partners CNR, in Prato, Italy. A full day of presentations was given (which can be found in the publications section of this web site) describing the progress within the project. Overall the advisory panel gave some very useful feedback to the project, giving a strong emphasis on the importance of issues such as usability and longer term maintenance of project outputs.
Uncertainty session at EGU a big success
UncertWeb is organising a session on Uncertainty in Environmental Data and Models at EGU 2011 to promote a dialogue between a range of disciplines including statistics, maths, philosophy, computer science and informatics, and applied environmental science (atmosphere, ocean, hydrology, geophysics, etc). In total over 30 abstracts were submitted to the session, more than double to number in other informatics sessions. EGU 2011 will be held in Vienna 3-8 April 2011.
