The Team Behind IODP, an SGCI Client, Explore Iceland's Mantle Convection and Climate

The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) is an international marine research collaboration that explores Earth's history and dynamics using ocean-going research platforms to recover data recorded in seafloor sediments and rocks and to monitor subseafloor environments.  Scientist Leah LeVay of IODP is on an expedition through August 6, 2021, to discover more about our Earth's mantle in Iceland. You can follow along on her adventure as a staff scientist by...

Article Discussing FAIR Principles Includes SGCI Client Hydroshare

SGCI Client and Focus Week Participant CoMSES.Net Paves Way for FAIR Models

Around this time last year, in May 2020, West Hub affiliate Michael Barton and colleagues published an open letter in  Science  that urged worldwide scientists to share their COVID-19 models and openly publish their code so that it was Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable ( FAIR ). While it’s difficult to prove that this letter stimulated epidemiologists to make their work more transparent, the year 2020 brought more than 56,000 unique visitors to Barton’s social and...

Students Use Simvascular Gateway to Create Image-Based Anatomic Models and Blood Flow Simulations

We recently came across an exciting gateway-related Tweet in our feed and just had to share it with the SGCI community. Using the Simvascular gateway, students in Alison Marsden 's class at Stanford created image-based anatomic models and ran blood flow simulations. Check out the beautiful results below! 

2021 ESIP Summer Meeting: Best Practices for FAIR Research Software

The 2021 ESIP Summer Meeting will feature a presentation about FAIR Research by SGCI's Sandra Gesing and others on July 19, 2021. Presenter details and the abstract are available here . Research software is a significant and vital component of research. It is integral to all stages of research from pre- to post-processing and analysis and modeling. Recognizing software roles in reproducibility and the need for recognition for those who develop software has energized conversations on...

Science Node article "On the level with Hurricane Matthew" discusses using DesignSafe-CI gateway for coastal water level models of storm surge

On the level with Hurricane Matthew Data assimilation using DesignSafe-CI portal improves coastal water level models of storm surge Hurricane storm surge is one of the most hazardous and difficult parts of a hurricane to forecast. Researchers at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (UNC) have developed a data assimilation method for improving multi-day forecasts of coastal water levels. Data assimilation combines real-time measurements with model simulations....
