Natural disasters such as hurricanes heavily impact the US East and Gulf coasts. This creates the need for large scale modeling in the areas of meteorology and ocean sciences, coupled with an integrated environment for analysis and information dissemination. In turn, this means there is an increased need for large-scale distributed high performance(More)
In today's grid deployments, resource selection is based on the prior knowledge of the performance characteristics of the application on a particular resource and on real-time monitoring status of the resource such as load on the system , network bandwidth, etc. Any lag between a resource selection decision and the time the job appears in the sys-tem's(More)
Keywords: Prototype total water level modeling system Hydrodynamics Hydrology Water waves Wind Hurricanes a b s t r a c t Due to the devastating effects of recent hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico (e.g., Katrina, Rita, Ike and Gustav), the development of a high-resolution, real-time, total water level prototype system has been accelerated. The fully coupled(More)
— As the push towards electronic storage, publication, curation, and discoverability of research data collected in multiple research domains has grown, so too have the massive numbers of small to medium datasets that are highly distributed and not easily discoverable – a region of data that is sometimes referred to as the long tail of science. The rapidly(More)
for flooding in coastal watersheds. K ildow et al. (2009) reported that coastal states support 81% of the U.S. population and generate 83 percent [$11.4 trillion (U.S. dollars) in 2007] of U.S. gross domestic product. Population trends show that a majority of coastal communities have tran-sitioned from a seasonal, predominantly weekend, tourist-based(More)
