Service-oriented grid computation for large-scale parameter estimation in complex environmental modeling
Complex environmental modeling often involves a large number of unknown physical and ecological parameters. Parameter estimation is one of the most difficult steps in many modeling activities. In this paper we present a serviceoriented framework, named GGPE-G (Grid-enabled Global optimization for General Parameter Estimation), for efficient parameter estimation in heterogeneous, distributed systems. Being presented as services, the optimization algorithms, the physical and ecological process models and clients can interact with each other by XML message interactions. The proposed approach supports a generic parameter estimation procedure and can be easily applied to different modeling environment. In this paper, we explain the design, architecture, and implementation of GGPE-G in details. We also apply GGPE-G to a complex soil-water-atmosphereplant modeling system to demonstrate its utility and efficiency. Keywords Parameter Estimation, Parallel, Grid, Service-Oriented Architecture (...
