Poorly structured code is hard to maintain and read. Program refactoring can improve code structure and thus make it easier to preserve and to discern the underlying design. However, refactoring is a difficult and time-consuming process making it unattractive for many developers. An automated tool that could identify poorly structured code and make(More)
The purpose of the Cloud-Enabled Space Weather Platform (CESWP) project is to bring the power and flexibility of cloud computing to space weather physicists. The goal is to lower the barriers for the physicists to conduct their science. That is, to make it easier to collaborate with other scientists, develop space weather models, run simulations, produce(More)

The advent of the Virtual Observatory has begun an evolution in the space physics data environment. A number of nascent and discipline specific Virtual Observatories have started to emerge with an emphasis on data search and retrieval. As this new data environment takes shape an emphasis will be placed on interdisciplinary communication in attempts to(More)
The Space Physics Archive Search and Extract (SPASE) project has developed an information model for interoperable access and retrieval of data within the Heliophysics (also known as space and solar physics) science community. The diversity of science data archives within this community has led to the establishment of many virtual observatories to coordinate(More)
