Project Collaborator

AeroStat (AeroStat)
Principal Investigator: Greg Leptoukh
Co Investigator: Peter Fox
Description: Objective Provide online environment for convenient access to: Satellite and ground-based aerosol data Quality information and provenance Calibration/validation data Provide multi-sensor services: Multi-sensor and model intercomparison Cross-sensor bias adjustment Data merging Create collaborative environment for aerosol researchers to share ideas, workflows and results
Global Change Information System: Information Model and Semantic Application Prototypes (GCIS-IMSAP)
Principal Investigator: Peter Fox
Description: The Tetherless World Constellation (TWC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) proposes to facilitate the vocabulary and ontology development within the context of the overall development of semantic prototypes for the National Climate Assessment (NCA) portals using a combination of environmental inter-agency collaborations in a use-case focused workshop setting, information modeling, and software developments and deployments. The prototypes are intended to provide search and browse options that inspire confidence that all relevant information has been found; data providers will be citable with detailed provenance generation. Expected deliverables are: information models, vocabulary and ontology services for vetted climate assessment settings, and search/ browse prototypes.
SemantAQUA LogoSemantic Water Quality Portal (SemantAQUA)
Principal Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness
Co Investigator: Joanne S. Luciano
Description: We present a semantic technology-based approach to emerging environmental information systems. We used our linked data approach in the Tetherless World Constellation Semantic Water Quality Portal (TWC-SWQP). Our integration scheme uses a core domain ontology and integrates water data from different authoritative sources along with multiple regulation ontologies to enable pollution detection and monitoring. An OWL-based reasoning scheme identifies pollution events relative to user chosen regulations. Our approach also captures and leverages provenance to improve transparency. In addition, semantic water quality portal features provenance-based facet generation, query answering and data validation over the integrated data via SPARQL. We introduce the approach and the water portal, and highlight some of its potential impacts for the future of environmental monitoring systems.
