GEOSS Web Services (GWS) Interoperability Demostration
Presented at the workshop
The User and the GEOSS Architecture
July 22, 2007, Barcelona, Spain
Phytoplankton produce most of the oceanic biomass through photosynthesis
Photosynthesis by chlorophyll has been shown to increase with atmospheric dust fertilizationOcean Fertilization by Atmospheric Dust
Oceanic Biomass by Phytoplankton
Evidence of Chlorophyll Enhancement by Dust
N. Pacific Ocean
Bishop et al.(2002), Science
However, precipitation, the wind and many other factors also influence the production of chlorophyll
A scientific challenge is to quantify the chlorophyll-dust relationship

GEOSS System of Systems architecture is suitable for integrating data across geographical, disciplinary and organizational boundaries.
The current data access standardization is very spotty and fragile but non-intrusive mediator services can bridge the interoperability gaps.
Interoperability demonstrations are key steps toward configurable, robust data flow and processing networks.Summary
