Title: Virtual Geophysics Laboratory: Exploiting the Cloud and Empowering Geophysicists

Authors: Josh Vote, Rob Woodcock, Ryan Fraser, Terry Rankine and Richard Goh

Australian geological surveys archive ~3 Petabytes of data. Improvements in technology mean new data is being acquired at higher rates and resolution than ever before. The Virtual Geophysics Laboratory (VGL) assists this big data challenge by providing geophysicists with an integrated web environment, providing access to information, algorithms and computation in collaboration across the geoscience community.

Scientists using VGL can access the computing and storage resources provided by NeCTAR cloud computing services. In the same environment, data is accessed via the Spatial Information Services Stack (SISS), a standards based, web service infrastructure deployed across all Australian Geological Surveys.

Acknowledgements: VGL was developed by CSIRO in collaboration with Geoscience Australia, National Computational Infrastructure, Australia National University, Monash University and University of Queensland, and has been supported by the Australian Government's Education Investment Funds through NeCTAR.

Word length limit is 50-100 words (I looked it up when I went to work on my abstract). I've cut this back significantly, currently sitting at 99 word without the acknowledgements. Will have to save them for the presentation.

Good catch! I was assuming it it was up to 500 words like EGU. I've also fragmented a couple of sentences for clarity.
