The earth-and 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 application-oriented Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) to the research-oriented Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI). In an ideal world, all ocean(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)
(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 waves. The SCOOP program vision is a community "(More)
The Southeastern University Research Association (SURA) Coastal Ocean Observing and Prediction (SCOOP) program includes university, government, and private sector partners working together to implement Information Technology solutions. The SCOOP program goal is a modular and distributed system for predicting and visualizing the coastal response to extreme(More)
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 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)
1 Abstract The economically important Louisiana Coastal Area (LCA) is susceptible to hurricane activity which is increasingly aggravated by the continuing erosion of wetlands. Various programs are aimed at building sophisticated models of meteorological, coastal, and ecological processes. The emerging paradigm of Dynamic Data Driven Application Systems(More)
