Graduate Student Opportunity: Modeling Research in the Cloud Workshop

With funding from the National Science Foundation, the Unidata program is collaborating with researchers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and the university community to organize a workshop on “Modeling Research in the Cloud.” The workshop will include speakers and participants from academia, government, and the private sector (including commercial Cloud vendors), and will be held 31 May - 2 June 2017 at the UCAR campus in Boulder, Colorado. Funding is available to sponsor attendance at the workshop by five graduate students.

AGU's Thriving Earth Exchange presents opportunities to the Unidata community

Thriving Earth Exchange
Thriving Earth Exchange

The American Geophysical Union is developing the Thriving Earth Exchange to connect communities, scientists, and funders (or Seekers, Solvers, and Sponsors in the language of the Exchange) and bring Earth and Space science to bear on local challenges.

Program Director Raj Pandya explains the Thriving Earth Exchange this way: “Communities post their challenges; scientists suggest solutions; judges select the best solutions; the scientists get a financial reward; and the scientists, communities, and sponsors have the chance to work together to implement those solutions.”

Using the IDV to Analyze Marine Coral Stress

Modelling radiation stress on marine corals.

Researchers from Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia; the Wildlife Conservation Society in New York; the department of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) at the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands; and the University of Warwick in Coventry, United Kingdom are using the IDV to help analyze environmental stresses on marine corals. The stress factors include high temperatures, ultra-violet radiation, weather systems, sedimentation, as well as stress-reducing factors such as temperature variability and tidal dynamics. Their paper Global Gradients of Coral Exposure to Environmental Stresses and Implications for Local Management, was published in the online journal PLoS One and has been featured in other scientific magazines including Nature.
