The Environmental Research Division (ERD) conducts research to understand the effects of natural environmental variability on marine resource populations. ERD’s broad research scope includes disciplines from physical oceanography, to fisheries biology, to mathematical modeling, using a cooperative team approach. As part of this effort, in cooperation with the West Code Node of Coastwatch, ERD distributes data worldwide through a combination of innovative web browser access and web services. Opportunities related to the data distribution include (1) expanding and improving the existing web services, including but not limited to server-side functions and service gateways; (2) improving the level of user interaction provided by graphic displays and data visualization; (3) cloud computing; (4) interfacing with the “R” statistical language as a web service; and (5) “Rich Internet Applications”, particularly the development of “design your own” widgets and web pages that can capture workflows from data selection, through data analysis, to output from elementary services and widgets.
