D.B. Weldon Library Notes. Thought Number Two.

Continuing on from my last post.

Thought Number Two:

This may be way out there and grasping desperately at straws. But for fun I will add this:

I think the person is using or has an interest in Apache Software.

The Apache Software Foundation provides support for the Apache community of open-source software projects, which provide software products for the public good.


Well, for one, check out the logo:


and this is on their site:

Forest Hill, MD –03 March 2014– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 170 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that the Apache Open Climate Workbench Project (a.k.a. “Apache Climate” or “Apache OCW”) has graduated from the Apache Incubator to become a Top-Level Project (TLP), signifying that the project’s community and products have been well-governed under the ASF’s meritocratic process and principles.

Apache Climate is a climate evaluation toolkit used to leverage model outputs from organizations such as the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF), the Coordinated Regional Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX), the U.S. National Climate Assessment (NCA), and the North American Regional Climate Change Assessment Program (NARCCAP), coupled with remote sensing data from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and other agencies.

“Collaboration and science go hand in hand so it’s great to see NASA, CORDEX, NARCCAP, universities from around the world, and the greater climate science community embracing Open Source and the ASF,” said Michael Joyce, Vice President of Apache Climate. “The Open Climate Workbench has had an amazing journey with a great team of contributors and I’m excited to see where it’s going.”

That could account for some of the books the notes have been found in.

Just saying…
