behaviour of a community is a composition of processes addressing specific scientific concerns. Behaviours are  performed by SV Community Roles. In the ENVRI RM, the modelling of community behaviours is based on analysis of the common operations of research infrastructures which has resulted in Appendix A Common Requirements of Environmental Research Infrastructures. The community behaviours model focuses on Model Overview#ref_minimalset. A supporting a predefined minimal set of functionalities. A community behaviour can be either a single function or a composition of several functions from the function list.

#SVProcess
A process is a collection of steps taking place in a prescribed manner and leading to an objective. A step is an abstraction of an action, used in a process, that leaves unspecified the objects that participate in that action. Steps are introduced in the definition because not all the action details need be specified  in the composition.

 

Info
title Note

The Science viewpoint of the ENVRI RM only defines high level behaviours. A behaviour can be refined further by defining its constituting processes and steps, however, this task is left to the actual system designers.

    Data Preservation
    : A behaviour performed by a Data Curator that deposits (over long-term) the data and metadata or other supplementary data and methods according to specified policies, and makes them accessible on request.
  • Data Product Generation: A behaviour performed by a Data Curator that processes data against requirement specifications and standardised formats and descriptions.

  • Data Identification: A behaviour performed by a PID manager which provides a unique PID for data and metadata being curated.

  • Select or Build Local Conceptual Model: A behaviour performed by a Semantic Curator which supports the annotation of data and metadata.

  • Data AnnotationA behaviour performed by a Semantic Curator which supports the linking of data and metadata with a local conceptual model.

These are general behaviours of a service-oriented computing model. In the context of environmental science research infrastructures, a data processing community will focus on the implementation of domain special services, in particular those supporting Data Assimilation, Data AnalysisData Mining, Data Extraction, Scientific Modelling and Simulation, (Scientific) Workflow Enactment (See Terminology and Glossary for the definitions of these functionalities).
