– [email protected] Data Scientist at the NASA JPL in Pasadena, CA. A huge open source advocate and practitioner, Lewis enjoys floating up and down the tide of technologies at the Apache Software Foundation having a real enthusiasm for Web Search and Information Retrieval in particular. *Dr. Huikyo Lee - [email protected]jpl.nasa.gov Currently a Climate Data Scientist at the NASA JPL in Pasadena, California, Huikyo has lead development of Regional Climate Model Evaluation System (http://rcmes.jpl.nasa.gov), an open-source software toolkit based on Open Climate Workbench to facilitate systematic evaluation of climate models using observational datasets from a variety of sources.

software that performs climate model evaluation using model outputs from a variety of different sources (the Earth System Grid Federation, the Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment, the U.S. National Climate Assessment and the North American Regional Climate Change Assessment Program) and temporal/spatial scales with remote sensing data from NASA, NOAA and other agencies. The toolkit includes capabilities for rebinning, metrics computation and visualization. 9/8/16 ESIP Tech Dive 12
those that in turn use NASA JPL’s Regional Climate Modeling and Evaluation System (RCMES). RCMES provides us with several tutorials and examples which demonstrate what OCW can be used for.
