Supercomputer Research Follows Early Greening in Yellowstone

Research conducted using UT’s supercomputer, Nautilus, is uncovering the effects of expedited vegetation green-up in the greater Yellowstone ecosystem catalyzed by a warmer planet. Nautilus is managed by the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS) with resources and support provided by the Remote Data Analysis and Visualization Center of the institute.

NICS’s RDAV Makes Improvements for Species Distribution Research

The Remote Data Analysis and Visualization Center at UT’s National Institute for Computational Sciences has enhanced the web interface to a system that allows researchers to interact with sophisticated data about locations and relationships of life species across geographical areas. The improvements were built out of a pilot study project involving species distribution modeling in the Great Smoky Mountains National.
