I am seeking additional speakers for the session “Pangeo in Action” during the ESIP Winter Meeting next January in Bethesda, Maryland. Please contact me (jeffdlb @ucar.edu) if you are interested in participating. The session is 90 minutes, currently scheduled for Wed Jan 8 11:00-12:30.
The NSF-funded Pangeo project (http://pangeo.io/) is a community-driven architectural framework for big data geoscience. A typical Pangeo software stack leverages Python open-development libraries including elements such as Jupyter Notebooks for interactive data analysis, Intake catalogs to provide a higher level of abstraction, Dask for scalable, parallelized data access, and Xarray for working with labeled multi-dimensional arrays of data, and can support data formats including NetCDF as well the cloud-optimized Zarr format for chunked, compressed, N-dimensional arrays. This session seeks presentations describing implementations, results, or lessons learned from using these tools, and invites attendance by people interested in knowing more about Pangeo.
