New Project Aims to Make Sense of Climate-Change Data

January 3, 2013

NYU-Poly professor Claudio T. Silva is collaborating on a project to develop a platform that will help non-scientists better understand the long-term impacts of climate change. Silva, whose research includes big data, visualization, and data analysis, is working with software developer Kitware on its ClimatePipes project, which recently won a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy.

ClimatePipes will make valuable climate data available to non-researchers, including policymakers, health officials, agriculturists, and industry leaders. Users will be able to run complex computations and visualizations in the cloud or on a user-provided cluster, and upload data to a server for analysis and integration.

NYU-Poly’s work for ClimatePipes will be led from its new Visualization and Data Analysis Center in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. It also supports VisTrails. In addition to his appointment at NYU-Poly, Silva is head of disciplines of CUSP and affiliate faculty member at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.
