Visit continues collaborative research in ocean cyberinfrastructure


Advances in ocean cyberinfrastructure are integral to the vision of CMOP. An area of particular interest is the development and implementation of innovative "workflow" concepts enabling effective exploration of observational data and model outputs.

Research in this area has involved active collaborations across the campuses of of University of Utah, Portland State University and Oregon Health & Science University. One of the early outcomes has been on the development of an ocean appliance in support of adaptive oceanographic cruises.

As a part of these collaborations, post-doctoral scientist Bill Howe (OHSU) is visiting University of Utah (September 12-14), to (a) continue the integration of Juliana Freire and Claudio Silva's VisTrails in the CMOP cyberinfrastructure, and (b) explore the opportunity for cross-campus course offerings in the area of 3D scientific visualization.
