Résumé
The research at GCRG currently focuses on developing and understanding the predictive capability of the interconnections of terrestrial, atmospheric, and marine systems on global change. They focus primarily in the Arctic (Alaska, Russia), the Pacific Basin (including Baja California Sur, Mexico, Indonesia), and the semi-arid ecosystems of Italy and San Diego. They incorporate a small research aircraft, eddy covariance towers, soil measurements, remote sensing, and modeling in their research programs. This is a highly active research group with funding averaging $1.4 million/year. The GCRG website contains the tower logs from various towers over a period of time. The data is analyzed using graphs that are generated based on the data that is collected by the towers at these sites. A software known as EddyPro is used to convert the high speed data (incl. 3 D winds, CO2 and CH4 concentrations, temp, pressure, etc. into 30 min fluxes. This is outputted in a csv file, but the main goal is the reduction of the data. This csv file is uploaded and populated into the database of GCRG website, the main goal is to have realtime data available on the website so that students, scientists, and people concerned about the global climate change can analyze the changes in the atmosphere and have an inference about the climatic changes. Whenever the graphs are generated error handling is taken care with delicacy by displaying appropriate errors to the user whenever the wrong input is provided for to generate the graphs. Gap filled data is also stored in the database for the convenience of the audience of this website.
