More information about the project
The OOICloud Project is working to make data from the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) publically available in the cloud and accessible through a Pangeo interface. A primary goal is to provide these data to the scientific community using a cloud-performant object storage model, and to provide large-scale remote compute capabilities for research investigations.
With a generous gift from the Microsoft AI for Earth program, OOICloud resides in the Azure Cloud, and currently contains all of the data from the OOI HD video camera deployed at a hydrothermal vent in the caldera of Axial Volcano, a submarine volcano on the Juan de Fuca Ridge.
OOICloud will begin incorporating other OOI datasets in the coming year, starting with data from the geodetic instruments and the echosounders.
