The ‘Ike Water Gateway - Current State
TimeTuesday, July 246:30pm - 8:30pm
DescriptionWe present the latest release of the water science gateway developed at the University of Hawai‘i (UH), called the ‘Ike Water Gateway, ‘Ike means knowledge in Hawai‘ian. The gateway supports research in hydrology and water management and provides tools to address questions of water sustainability in Hawai‘i. The gateway provides centralized web based user interfaces and APIs supporting multi-domain data management, computation, analysis and visualization tools to support reproducible science, modeling, data discovery and decision support for the Hawaii EPSCoR ‘Ike Wai research team and wider Hawai‘i hydrology community. By leveraging the Agave platform UH has constructed a gateway that ties data and advanced computing resources together to support diverse research domains including microbiology, geochemistry, geophysics, economics and humanities, coupled with computational and modeling workflows delivered in a user friendly web interface and REST APIs. Current features include data/metadata management and sharing, computational job execution/management, jupyter notebook integrations, containerized computing and visualization. These initial tools form the basis for an extendable API base that will be leveraged to tie in additional components and fill out the functionality of the gateway as the ‘Ike Wai project continues to progress.
