 Feature: A Decade of Globus in Science

TeraShake 2 simulation of magnitude 7.7 earthquake, created by scientists at the Southern California Earthquake Center and the San Diego Supercomputer Center.
Simulation: SCEC scientists Kim Olsen, Steven Day, SDSU et al; Yifeng Cui et al, SDSC/UCSDVisualization: Amit Chourasia, SDSC/UCSD

Simulating tens of thousands of possible earthquakes shaking Los Angeles, blood flow through realistic human arteries, or the effect of radiation treatment on cancerous tumors. Searching for new subatomic particles, predicting severe storms and hurricanes, or studying supernovae observed from many different telescopes.

Over the past ten years, grid computing and the Globus Toolkit have made these scientific research projects – and hundreds more like them – easier, faster, and in some cases possible for the very first time.

 Digital Libraries for Grid Computing Training
Current grid computing training activities are predominantly delivered through scheduled events at distributed locations. While these events are essential, they represent only one means for delivering training. The e-Learning pilot at the National e-Science Centre for the EGEE and ICEAGE projects has developed a range of new digital library beta services to facilitate wider access to existing training resources and to underpin forthcoming e-learning services.
