The work in biodiveristy contributes to the Architecture Implementation Pilot (AIP) of the GEOSS effort in support of the Biodiversity Societal Benefit Area (SBA).  For AIP-2 (2009),the biodiversity participants developed three biodiversity scenarios, each referenced below with pointers to their reports and demo videos.

   

  1. GEOSS was used to predict how the distribution of Pika will change with climate change in the Great Basin of North America.  The scope of the AIP-2 Pika Distribution Biodiversity SBA Engineering Report is to briefly describe the use scenario entitled "Pika Distribution" of the Climate Change and Biodiversity Working Group.  The Engineering Report describes how the GEOSS-based system was tested to predict how biodiversity will change with climate, for Pikas distribution in the Great Basin (North America). The architecture of the developed system is described, focusing on the GEOSS standard components and services utilized by the demonstration. Persistent Exemplars services identified are listed. The demonstration video for this scenario can be found by navigating to the main video and clicking on Pika Biodiversity.
  2. GEOSS was used to assess the impact of climate change on the species of a simple food chain in the Arctic region. The scope of the AIP-2 Arctic Food Chain Biodiversity SBA Engineering Report is to briefly describe the use scenario entitled "Climate Change and Biodiversity Arctic Food Chain" of the Climate Change and Biodiversity Working Group. The Engineering Report describes how the GEOSS-based system was tested to
    assess the impact of climate change on the species of a simple food chain in the Arctic region. The architecture of the developed system is described, focusing on the GEOSS standard components and services utilized by the demonstration. Persistent Exemplars services identified are listed. The demonstration video for this scenario can be found by navigating to the main video and clicking on Arctic Food Chain.
  3. GEOSS was used to identify the extent and degree of vegetation changes in response to climate change in arctic ecosystems, and in particular, the boreal-tundra ecotone. The scope of the AIP-2 Polar Ecosystems Biodiversity SBA Engineering Report is to describe the user scenario entitled "Polar Ecosystem Vegetation Changes Scenario". The Engineering Report describes how the GEOSS-based system was tested to identify the extent and degree of vegetation changes in response to climate change in arctic ecosystems, and in particular, the boreal-tundra ecotone. The architecture, workflow of the developed system is presented, the standards-based GEOSS components and services are highlighted. The demonstration video for this scenario can be found by navigating to the main video and clicking on Polar Ecosystems.
