Scientific Software Integration (SSI): The Community-Driven BiG CZ Software System for Integration and Analysis of Bio and Geoscience Data in the Critical Zone

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

The goal of this project is to develop a web-based integration and visualization environment for joint analysis of cross-scale bio and geoscience processes in the Critical Zone (BiG CZ), spanning experimental and observational designs. Collaborators include members of the Critical Zone science and broader communities, including natural resource managers and stakeholders. The BiG CZ Portal and Toolbox are built on foundations developed by the Model My Watershed® v2 and Observations Data Model v2 projects.
