The Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA) Coastal Ocean Observing and Prediction Program (SCOOP) is a multi-institution collaboration whose partners are working to implement a modular, distributed system for real-time prediction and visualization of the impacts of extreme atmospheric events, including storm surge and wind-driven waves. SCOOP(More)
The Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA) has advanced the SURA Coastal Ocean Observing and Prediction (SCOOP) program as a multi-institution collaboration to design and prototype a modular, distributed system for real-time prediction and visualization of the coastal impacts from extreme atmospheric events, including hurricane inundation and(More)
Communities that want to share information often do not know enough about the available standards or how to choose the best one. One is example is marine communities that want to share observation data. Even selecting a standards body, such as the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), is not enough. For example, OGC has more than one standard that could(More)
The earthand ocean-science communities are developing the concept of a "system of systems" (www.epa.gov/geoss) for observing the earth and oceans. Related initiatives in the ocean sciences range from the applicationoriented Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) to the research-oriented Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI). In an ideal world, all ocean(More)
Key to the appropriate use of data is the knowledge of data quality. This knowledge is critical for products and decisionsupport tools that utilize real-time data, and it is also essential for the longer term application of data as well. Guidance by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) for appraising observational data for archive states(More)
The SURA Coastal Ocean Observing & Prediction (SCOOP) program is building cyberinfrastructure (CI) to enable advanced real-time ensemble forecasting of the coastal impacts from storms and hurricanes. This prototype of a reliable, flexible, grid-enabled forecast system integrates real-time distributed data and computer models for the coasts of the(More)
