Alice Bertini of NESL/CGD will present an SEA Seminar titled,
"The CESM Experiment Database - A Peek Behind the Scenes"
The Community Earth System Model has many users including scientists and developers. With the increase in the number of experiments run using the CESM, it has become necessary to provide a centralized application to store run meta-data. The CESM Experiment Database is a n-tier, web-based, database back-end application that is designed to be a collaborative on-line lab notebook for storing and tracking the state of the CESM at the time of a run. The current version, 1.0, is accessible only from within UCAR/NCAR networks at http://csegweb.cgd.ucar.edu. Future versions will be open to outside authorized collaborators. This talk goes "behind the screens" to look at the software engineering used to build the CESM Experiment Database application
