NASAThis project is funded by NASA.


To develop a cryospheric analysis portal to study Greenland's ice mass balance.


Julienne Stroeve is PI; Ruth Duerr and Siri Jodha Singh Khalsa are Co-PIs; Dave Gallaher is Project Manager.

Project Summary

The Cryospheric Change Analysis Web Services (CCAWS) project is developing a scalable cryospheric analysis portal for the study of Greenland's ice mass balance. This portal will include interactive data analysis tools, seamless data access, and interoperable information services. To make this possible, a set of existing subsetting, gridding, projection, and visualization tools at NSIDC will be made into modular Web services. Also, as part of this project, NSIDC will bring in several new data sets.
