Scientists in climate research are struggling with both model output and observed data that are exploding in size. Our nation’s supercomputers assimilate geoscience observations into coupled simulations of the oceans, atmosphere, and cryosphere that can generate ensembles upwards of 50TB for just one single experiment or a 30 year reanalysis on the order of half a PB. So, how does the research scientist interactively explore these results? Presented are the challenges of a small 20 member research team in the CSIRO Climate Science Centre and how we are leveraging the Pangeo stack towards our goals of unchaining scientific discovery with an interactive data exploration platform that can scale to meet the demands of our datasets.
