    The remote sensing information service grid node (RSIN) is a tool for dealing with climate change and quantitative environmental monitoring. Based on the high-throughput computing grid, RSIN enables a workflow management system for data placement. The accompanying unified data-and-computation-schedule algorithm helps load balancing between and within workflow steps. View full abstract»
