[ACG45-04] Development of a database system for SI-CAT climate experiments
Keywords:Climate Change, Relational Database
We develop “a database system for SI-CAT climate experiments” (SI-CAT DBS) for providing functions to find necessary data for the users. The SI-CAT DBS mainly consists of a relational database, a data download function and user interface. The relational database using PostgreSQL is a key function among them. Temporally and spatially compressed data are registered on the relational database. As a first step, we developed the relational database for precipitation, temperature and track data of typhoon according to requests by SI-CAT members. The data download function provides a function to download temporally and spatially extracted data based on search results obtained by the relational database. We also develop the web-based user interface for using the relational database and the data download function. The SI-CAT DBS is currently in operational test on a server maintained by Data Integration and Analysis System Program (DIAS).
The SI-CAT DBS will be released on DIAS in fiscal year 2018. Techniques of the database system for near-future climate change projections might be quite useful for simulation and observational data in other research fields. We report current status of development and some case studies of the SI-CAT DBS.
