Residents of Nicaragua were still being pummeled by Hurricane Iota’s powerful winds and life-threatening storm surge on Tuesday when a group of University of Miami scientists and administrators more than a thousand miles away explained to a virtual audience how the work of a newly funded cooperative research institute and the infrastructure that supports it will help improve our understanding of tropical cyclones and other climate events.

Pulley Ridge Project is underway!
Pulley Ridge is series of underwater barrier islands on the southwest Florida shelf, home to a unusual mixture of corals, algae, and shallow water and deep water species. Studying this mesophotic coral ecosystem’s physical and biological attributes may provide significant economic value to Florida’s tourism and commercial/recreational fisheries.
The Pulley Ridge Project is a NOAA-funded, multi-PI project lead by Dr. Robert Cowen of the Rosenstiel School (RSMAS) at the University of Miami. The Center for Computational Science at the University of Miami (CCS) is a major participant in this 5-year, $5M dollar, multi-disciplinary project, and will take a lead in the design, development, and deployment of the project’s Decision Support Toolkit (DST). Project servers will be hosted by the CCS, and a project website will also be created and supported by the CCS. The CCS team is lead by Mr. Felimon Gayanilo and Mr. Christopher Mader, both from the Software Engineering Team at the CCS.
EPA Gulf Guardian Award 2011
Felimon Gayanilo received the 2011 EPA Gulf Guardian award in the partnership category for his leading role in the development of the data portal for the Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean Observing System Regional Association (GCOOS-RA). The portal was deemed a key component of the centralized data management system, benefiting a broad community.
The purpose of the portal is to aggregate near real-time oceanographic data streams from sources distributed around the Gulf of Mexico. The GCOOS Data Portal provides an interactive map displaying the status of ocean observing stations and information about the environment around the Gulf of Mexico. It also features hurricane tracking, earthquake monitoring, vessel tracking, and a navigational chart.
The GCOOS project is funded by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
