Our understanding of linked environmental systems is being revolutionized by the enormous volumes of data being produced daily by models and observational networks. Yet, little of this information has trickled down to be used by the companies, government agencies, researchers, policy makers, or the public at large. The goal of ECO-Hub is to develop enabling technologies to bridge this divide in collaboration with the Cyber Center. ECO-Hub will leverage the work of the Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN) and the nanoHUB middleware project by training undergraduate and graduate students and programmers to deploy advanced cyberinfrastructure (CI) for environmental applications.
Faculty in C4E and the Purdue Climate Change Research Center (PCCRC) will partner with NCN, the Indiana Center for Database Systems (ICDS), and ITaP to adapt, complement, and extend nanoHUB's successful approach to trigger a fundamental shift in the way that environmental science is done. ECO-Hub will provide a flexible framework by which research groups at Purdue (initially) and outside of Purdue (subsequently) will be able to upload and run, in real-time, models on a central computational engine utilizing a web interface to set up simulations and analyze output. ECO-Hub will grow by the contribution of impact models and decision support tools and driving data sets by community members.
