Chemical Transformation System: Cloud Based Cheminformatic Services To Support Integrated Environmental Modeling, Kurt Wolfe, Nicholas Pope, Rajbir Parmar, Mike Galvin, Caroline Stevens, Eric Weber, Jonathan Flaishans, Tom Purucker

International Congress on Environmental Modelling and Software

Integrated Environmental Modeling (IEM) systems that account for the fate/transport of organics frequently require physicochemical properties as well as transformation products. A myriad of chemical property databases exist but these can be difficult to access and often do not contain the proprietary chemicals that environmental regulators must consider. We are building the Chemical Transformation System (CTS) to facilitate model parameterization and analysis. CTS integrates a number of physicochemical property calculators into the system including EPI Suite, SPARC, TEST and ChemAxon. The calculators are heterogeneous in their scientific methodologies, technology implementations and deployment stacks. CTS also includes a chemical transformation ...

The Emergency Maps Tool (EMT) has been developed as part of a collaboration environment in the C2-SENSE Emergency Interoperability Framework (www.c2-sense.eu). The collaboration environment aims to connect all relevant organizations for joint response in emergency and crises situations. The Emergency Maps Tool aims to display all relevant resources (e.g., authorities, organization, points and object of interests, messages, etc.) involved or of special importance, in order to allow proper decision making. EMT allows decision makers to set and monitor activities, send and receive event related messages but also to include ad-hoc information from sensors or sensor networks (e ...

International Congress on Environmental Modelling and Software

As part of the NSF EarthCube cross-domain interoperability roadmap and the CINERGI (Community Inventory of EarthCube Resources for Geoscience Interoperability) projects, we assembled and analysed several catalogs of environmental models. The goals of this work included analysis of patterns of pre-model data flows from multiple domains and consistent cataloguing models across multiple model collections using a common set of metadata fields. This paper presents status updates and initial analytical results along these goals. We explored model registries assembled by NOAA and EPA, as well as model descriptions created within CSDMS, ESMF and TESS projects. These model metadata collections were visualized ...
