Virtual Geophysics Laboratory

Ryan Fraser, CSIRO
Josh Vote, CSIRO


The Virtual Geophysics Laboratory (VGL) is a scientific workflow portal that provides Geophysicists with access to an integrated

environment that leverages eResearch tools and harnesses the latest in Cloud computing technologies. It is a collaboration

between CSIRO, Geoscience Australia (GA), and the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), and has been funded by the

Federal Government’s Education Investment Funds through NeCTAR.

The VGL provides scientists with an easy agent to exploit multiple technologies provided by eResearch and Cloud in a user driven

interface. It was developed in close collaboration with the geophysics user community and, with representatives from GA, ANU,

Monash, and UQ, has been deployed directly into their environment. The VGL is a open, freely available environment for the research

community and v1.1 has seen incorporation of additional geoscience computational codes and the National Airbourne Geophysics

Library from GA.

This session will detail "what" the VGL is, raise awareness, and highlight the opportunities it presents not only for

geophysics, but to the broader earth science community. The session will also include demonstrations followed by social

drinks and nibbles. RSVP is appreciated for catering purposes. Email Felicity.Francis@NOSPAMcsiro.au by 13 Feb.
