Met Office Pangeo: Giving Scientists Back Their Flow

Kevin Donkers

Analysis, Visualisation & Data Team – UK MET Office


The UK Met Office is both the UK’s weather forecaster service, and its research institute for weather and climate science. With weather models ever increasing in volume and velocity of output, the ability for scientists to analyse so much data with the tools available becomes increasingly difficult. This can lead to compromised investigative analysis due to constraints on time and tools. The Met Office Informatics Lab sought out to address this with an elastic, cloud based platform on which analysts could build tools to work with such high momentum data. This started off with Jade and became Pangeo. This talk is a brief history of the Lab’s work with Pangeo, how it has been used and where it is going next.


AeRO is the industry association focused on eResearch in Australasia. We play a critical coordination role for our members, who are actively transforming research via Information Technology. Organisations join AeRO to advance their own capabilities and services, to collaborate and to network with peers. AeRO believes researchers and the sector significantly benefit from greater communication, coordination and sharing among the increasingly different and evolving service providers.
