In a process of “learning by doing” the hydrometeorological scientists accessing the DRIHM e-Infrastructure will carry out HMR activities, while simultaneously working with ICT researchers to develop the necessary tools and practices to effectively exploit ICT resources for computing, archiving and data processing.
The DRIHM w-Infrastructure will be based on:
The currently existing e-Infrastructures are designed to handle the processing of a large amount of distributed data, exploiting the sharing of computing, storage, and network resources in a coordinated way. DRIHM applications will certainly benefit from the above design, with a close interaction with EGI and PRACE projects, nevertheless DRIHM also has specific HMR requirements not yet or only partly addressed within the presently existing e- Infrastructures. They concern topics like the integration of sensor networks and acquisition systems, the sharing of different modelling and post-processing tools, the data policy and the provision of training/support in all related aspects (from the set-up and operation of e-Science environments to adding new applications and user access).
