Siberia Integrated Regional Study information – computational and instrumental infrastructure development. // Abstracts of reports on the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting 2011, 5 – 9 December 2011, San-Francisco, USA
Reported are several important steps in development of information-computational and instrumental infrastructure of mega-project Siberia Integrated Regional Study, which is devoted to investigation of global change impact on Siberia environment and related feedback. Firstly, development of scientific and technological basis and creation of a reference network for monitoring of climatic changes in Siberia is planned for 2012-2017. The network will include 12 reference monitoring stations equipped with modern instrumentation for monitoring spread across Siberia as well as data center aimed at storage of instrumental and modeling data and providing an access to those. Secondly, a suite of models is under development now, which will comprise global and regional climatic and meteorological models run at the Siberian Supercomputer Center. It should create an information basis for decision-making on future socio-economic development of Siberia.
