It all hinges on very capable developers Nancy Wilkins-Diehr (wilkinsn@sdsc.edu) Trust and Reliability are Fundamental to Success:  Trust and Reliability are Fundamental to Success Nancy Wilkins-Diehr (wilkinsn@sdsc.edu) How can we build interfaces that scientists will trust?:  How can we build interfaces that scientists will trust? Expertise Simple web pages are easy to design Complex capabilities, particularly those involving grid access, take knowledgeable developers to create a production product LEAD, nanoHUB show what investment can do Sustained funding Most science groups have money for research, not portal building or ongoing support for portals Knowledge transfer Must take advantage of industry advancements Investments must result in building blocks that other applications can use Many gateways have similar issues Data access Analysis capabilities User work environments Workflow capabilities Nancy Wilkins-Diehr (wilkinsn@sdsc.edu) Tremendous Opportunities Using the Largest Shared Resources - Challenges too!:  Tremendous Opportunities Using the Largest Shared Resources - Challenges too! What’s different when the resource doesn’t belong just to me? Resource discovery Accounting Security Proposal-based requests for resources (peer-reviewed access) Code scaling and performance numbers Justification of resources Gateway citations Tremendous benefits at the high end, but even more work for the developers Potential impact on science is huge Small number of developers can impact thousands of scientists But need a way to train and fund those developers and provide them with appropriate tools Nancy Wilkins-Diehr (wilkinsn@sdsc.edu) What is the TeraGrid?

It's interesting that I found an example using IDV that parallels our discussion of mesoscale boundaries in class. It illustrates very nicely the transition to a coastal low and the strong baroclinic zone with a location very similar to Markowski's depiction. I created this image in IDV after running a 5-km WRF run (initialized with NAM output) via the LEAD Portal. This simple 1-level plot is just a precursor of the many capabilities IDV will eventually offer to visualize high-res WRF output. Enjoy!
