ABSTRACT: The NOAA Global Interoperability Program (GIP) promotes and supports the software infrastructure that makes possible U.S. and international programs in climate and weather research, operational forecasting, and assessments and impacts of environmental change. This distributed and complex infrastructure allows groups from different institutions to work together collaboratively, sharing modeling components, real-time forecasts, model and observational data, and analysis and visualization services. Development of the software, and initiatives to enhance interoperablity and integration, are distributed across many groups, with funding from many sponsors, spanning organizations, agencies, and countries. GIP provides a coherent, forward-looking perspective on Earth science infrastructure projects, supports a set of high-priority development activities from established and new efforts, and has created a uniquely broad forum for these diverse groups to interact.
