Euro-Mediterranean Centre for Climate Change Data Grid
Earth Science is strongly becoming a data intensive and oriented activity. Petabytes of data, big collections, huge datasets are continuously produced, managed and stored as well as accessed, transferred and analyzed by several scientists and researchers at multiple sites.
From the data grid perspective, a key element to search, discover, manage and access huge amount of data stored within distributed storages is the related data and metadata framework.
This paper describes the Euro-Mediterranean Centre for Climate Change Data Grid dealing with both architectural and infrastructural issues concerning the adopted grid data and metadata handling systems.
