NACSE Community Portals
Sharing of data, information, and results is critical to research advances. Unfortunately, data is acquired in a variety of locations formats that are not easily compared or interchangeable. The sheer size of many research datasets adds to the challenge.
NACSE partners with scientific communities to design and develop web-based portals. They provide discipline-specific tools so scientists can work together to develop community datasets and models. Portals help users integrate and analyze information in new ways and facilitate discovery.
The portals NACSE develops are customized to meet the individual needs of each community. For example, we have developed and deployed a number of portals addressing various aspects of earthquake and tsunami research, including the three shown here:
- The Tsunami Reconnaissance Repository is a long-term archive of field data acquired by survey teams immediately after the Indian Ocean tsunami
- The Tsunami Computational Portal gives allows users to remotely execute computationally-intensive community codes
- The Inundation Science & Engineering Cooperative hosts code and data for community models addressing flooding, storm waves and surges, and tsunamis
