Complexity in Hydrobiogeochemistry: A Multidisciplinary Integrative Approach

2:00 PM-4:00 PM
Room: Ballroom A

Multidisciplinary and integrated research efforts are the key to well-coordinated scientific approaches for solving environmental problems. These efforts often involve designing, developing, and testing integrated models of complex processes. The objectives are to facilitate the exchange of information and new findings, the utilization of high-performance computational resources, and the real-time application of the models to large-scale environmental problems. The speakers will discuss development efforts using an AVS-based user interface that allows display of experimental data and remote steering of high-performance hydrobiogeochemistry models in distributed computing environments. They will also discuss ongoing experimental efforts, model development, performance enhancement, and multiscale applications.
