Connecting Data Providers and Stakeholders Building Bridges Millua Viaduct, FR greatdreams.com Slide 2 Concerns for Climate Science Enterprise Transferability Scalability Changed decisions and decision processes Public support for climate research Enabling system-wide change Sustainability National Perspectives Slide 3 Issue: Many Space & Time Scales Slide 4 Past Future Forecasts: months to over one year Instrumental record: decades to over one century Paleoclimatological indicators: centuries to millenia Climate change: decades to century Timescales of Climate Information Slide 5 Concerns for Climate Science Enterprise Transferability Scalability Changed decisions and decision processes Public support for climate research Enabling system-wide change Sustainability National Perspectives Integrative: researchers/stakeholders, interdisciplinary, end-to-end Participatory, Iterative: responsive to stake- holder concerns On-going Process: mutual capacity building & sustainable legacy products Products: link variability, impacts, response options Equitable: outcomes benefit participants & equitably so Slide 6 Lessons Learned: Decision Support Tools Stakeholders Information needs, understanding, access Social Science Vulnerability, networks Physical Science Variability and change Computer Science Web programming Transferable, scalable tools are possible. Focus on knowledge development, not just data & information. Interactive webtools require major commitment and resources. Prototypes insufficient! Stakeholders need reliable tools, which require solid software foundation, organized development, sustainability for maintenance and expansion. Slide 7 Some efforts focus on the resource- intensive cultivation of relationships with stakeholders, developing deep understanding of decision contexts and needs for climate and ancillary products, as well as effective means for supporting access to and use of information. Evolution of Integrated Teams Stakeholders Information needs, understanding, access Social Science Vulnerability, networks Physical Science Variability and change Stakeholder-driven projects are often limited in their ability to fully implement sophisticated engineered software projects required for successful transition to sustainable operations. Slide 8 Evolution of Integrated Teams Stakeholders Information needs, understanding, access Physical Science Variability and change Computer Science Web programming Some efforts focus on the resource- intensive development of technology for managing information, including data storage, discovery, access, analysis, and visualization. Often limited in their ability to determine specific, yet scalable, user needs sufficient for developing design requirements. Necessarily focused on speculative information products that have limited interest for decision makers (e.g., from prospective satellite-based instruments, experimental monitoring programs). Slide 9 Evolution of Integrated Teams Stakeholders Information needs, understanding, access Social Science Vulnerability, networks Physical Science Variability and change Computer Science Web programming Typically, neither type of effort can afford to be all-encompassing. The respective communities have different priorities, processes, and pathways for decision support tool development activities. The premise of this session is that development of sustainable user-centric decision support tools would benefit from partnerships across these two types of efforts. Goal: identify opportunities for closer collaboration across communities.
