Apache Open Climate Workbench
Apache Open Climate Workbench is an effort to develop software that performs climate model evaluation using model outputs from a variety of different sources (the Earth System Grid Federation, the Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment, the U.S. National Climate Assessment and the North American Regional Climate Change Assessment Program) and temporal/spatial scales with remote sensing data from NASA, NOAA and other agencies. The toolkit includes capabilities for rebinning, metrics computation and visualization.

Open Climate Workbench @ 3rd Lund Regional-Scale Climate Modeling Workshop, Lund, Sweden
June 18, 2014
Memebers of the OCW community (Paul Ramirez, Kyo Lee, and Paul Loikith) led a half-day RCMES/OCW training session at the 3rd Lund Regional-Scale Climate Modeling Workshop in Lund, Sweden.
The session was full with 23 attendees from 14 different countries. The tutorial involved an introduction to using the RCMES toolkit for model evaluation and information on how to be involved with OCW development. This was the first fully interactive hands-on training session for the RCMES project from which Apache OCW stems. Materials from the tutorial will be available online at the RCMES site.
