    • 1. SEAD: SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENT- ACTIONABLE DATA Leveraging Existing Cyberinfrastructure for Long-Term Sustainability Margaret Hedstrom-University of Michigan James Myers-Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Robert H.

    • 3. SEAD CYBERINFRASTRUCTURE• An international resource for sustainability science• Novel technical and business approaches to supporting the long-tail of research data• Lifecycle support: actionable data services integrated with curation and preservation infrastructure
    • 4. SUSTAINABILITY RESEARCH IS CENTRALTO SOLVING MANY OF SOCIETY’SMOST CRITICAL CHALLENGES • Local processes aggregating to produce global consequences • Multiple time scales • Coupling of natural and human systems • Interacting systems-of-systems requiring multidisciplinary understanding • Environmental – Economic - Social Science Cooperation Technology Policy Economics Poverty & Justice
    • 5. DATA CHALLENGES INSUSTAINABILITY RESEARCH• Many dimensions, many coordinate systems, many scales, many formats, a long-tail of providers and users, …
    • 6. ENABLING SUSTAINABILITY RESEARCH• Discovering and integrating data are a major barrier! • Organize data geospatially, temporally, and thematically• Understanding the quality and applicability of data is a significant challenge! • Provide provenance, literature connections, QA/QC information, and other evidence about the data• Collaborating across projects to coordinate data collection and analysis to address inter-disciplinary issues is a further barrier! • Provide ways for groups to collaborate and share data directly during active projects
    • 7. BUT...• Managed Data storage and services are expensive!• Begging for metadata doesn’t work!• Curation and preservation are time consuming!• The long-tail is not standardized!• Data collections are always missing something valuable!• Data models evolve!• Cyberinfrastructure is obsolete by the time you build it!• Building community as you leverage cyberinfrastructure
    • 8. SEAD: LEVERAGING EXISTINGRESOURCES• Cyberinfrastructure • IU Data Capacitor/HPC Capabilities • UIUC/NCSA HPC Capabilities • Rensselaer CCNI Capabilities• Repositories • UM Deep Blue • IU ScholarWorks • ICPSR Repository • UIUC IDEALS
    • 9. KEY QUESTIONS• What could SEAD capture when? • A lot, as its created! • Take advantage of semantic approaches• How can SEAD provide direct value to data producers, users, and curators? • Single mechanism for managing project and reference data! • Value-added network-effect altmetrics services!• How can SEAD lower barriers and reduce/realign costs? • web 2.0, 3.0, and social computing!
    • 10. SEAD 18 MONTH PROTOTYPE TARGETSFOR CYBERINFRASTRUCTURE• Active and Social Content Curation • Pilot Active Content Repository, VIVO deployments • Exemplar services for Data Ingest, Discovery, Re-use, Curation• CI for Long-term Access • Data model, protocol design/development • Pilot Federated Repository infrastructure
    • 11. SEAD CI QUICKVIEW• SEAD will quickly build a repository and data services infrastructure for sustainability research that can be responsively adapted based on community feedback – Community Agile Development• SEAD will leverage existing tools and emerging practices to dramatically enhance the interactions of researchers and data librarians – Active Curation• SEAD’s focus on the long-tail will force an emphasis on ease-of-use and low costs that is critical for long-term sustainability – Leverage Existing Institution Resources for Long-term Access• SEAD will leverage experiences in the sustainability research community to provide guidance for other long-tail communities making the transition to an interdisciplinary, systems-oriented approach to research – Sustainability and Resource Growth Partnership and Collaboration
