However, the ecological data collected from the sensors of different tower sites are stored in different databases which do not have a standardized format. To reprocess the data has so far required complicated pipeline computing.

But now, the Academia Sinica Grid Computing Center has developed a new, grid-oriented way in which to deal with carbon flux observations.
