Scripps Institution of Oceanography participated in the iGrid 2005 conference held at Calit2. Real- time experiments were carried out to process, transport and visualize different Earth science datasets using multi 10 gigabit international and national computer networks.

iGrid 2005 Receives CENIC Networking Innovation Award
A demonstration of more than four dozen scientific applications running on very-high-bandwidth optical networks -- many of them linking different countries on different continents -- has won the CENIC 2006 Innovations in Networking Award for Experimental/Developmental Applications. The award for iGrid 2005 went to host Larry Smarr, Director of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), and iGrid co-chairs Maxine Brown of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and Tom DeFanti of UIC and Calit2.
