Global Change

The Global Change federal initiative raises unprecedented challenges in various associated technology areas such as parallel processing [Rosati:91a] and large object-oriented databases [Stonebraker:91a]. The complexity of this domain is due both to the huge data sizes/rates to be processed and to the diversity of involved research and simulation areas ranging from climate modelling to economics. In collaboration with the Bainbridge Technology Group, Ltd. (BTGL) [Rosati:91b], we are planning to evaluate MOVIE in the context of various computational tasks associated with Global Change, with the focus on advanced visualization, animation, and large system integration.
