Synthesis of diverse data collection and modeling to support iUTAH research teams requires a facility with adequate storage, networking, computational, and human resources. The iUTAH CI Team is building the iUTAH Modeling and Data Federation to support the full data life cycle and increase capacity for data collection, organization, management, sharing, synthesis to higher-level products, and integration with models developed by iUTAH partners.

The iUTAH MDF is coordinating across Utah universities. Data organization, archival, and publication is primarily supported at Utah State University, whereas the CI Team is coordinating data storage resources with the University of Utah for redundancy and for High Performance Computing support. The CI Team is also leveraging development of enhanced optical network connectivity through the Utah Education Network and the recent EPSCoR RII C2 award as well as computational resources through the recent Utah/Wyoming EPSCoR CI-WATER award.

We are working on a number of different hardware and software development efforts to create better access to data and new tools for collaboration among iUTAH participants. Click on the links to learn more about our development efforts.
