Project: Distributed grid computing for climate change adaptation and biological modelling/simulation
Project coordinator: Dr. Enquebaher Kassaye
Establish a grid computing facility to facilitate the operation of grid-computing powered research projects in the areas of Biological and Climate Change Adaptation Modelling and Simulation, for the benefit of academics and students, researchers, at the regional and national levels. Offer the grid computing facilities free of charge to its users.
Train technical staff (server and operations management) and instructors and researchers in using the grid computing environment for science.
Conduct research project in Modelling and Analysis Environment for climate change analysis and forecasting.
Conduct research project in Modelling and Simulation Environment for biology, medicine and other natural sciences and engineering.
