The California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) and the Center for Earth Observations and Applications (CEOA) present collaborative research on sensor networks and instrument grids designed for the NSF funded projects Earthscope, the Ocean Observatories Initiative, LOOKING and ROADNet, enabled by cyberinfrastructure initiatives such as the OptIPuter. A 50-megapixel PowerMac G5 tiled display system (iCluster) will be used to demonstrate the transmission of real time signals from the USArray seismic sensors, the ROADnet image bank, and remote playback of HDTV imagery transmitted from vigorously venting submarine hydrothermal fields near the northern end of the Juan de Fuca Ridge, with simultaneous stream analysis and 3D visualizations of various geophysical datasets.
