      Leadbetter, Adam; Shepherd, Adam; Arko, Robert; Chandler, Cyndy; Chen, Yanning; Dockery, Nkemdirim; Ferreira, Renata; Fu, Linyun; Thomas, Robert; West, Patrick; Zednik, Stephan (Earth Science Informatics, 2016-02-18)
      Within the field of ocean science there is a long history of using controlled vocabularies and other Semantic Web techniques to provide a common and easily exchanged description of datasets. As an activity within the ...
    • Next Generation Environmental Informatics as exemplified by the Tetherless World Semantic Water Quality Portal 

      Wang, Ping; Zheng, Jin; Fu, Linyun; Patton, Evan; Lebo, Tim; Ding, Li; Luciano, Joanne; McGuinness, Deborah L. (2011-12-05)
      In late 2009 in Bristol County, RI there was a case of E. Coli contaminating the public water supply resulting in illnesses in the population, particularly young children. Residents requested information concerning when ...
    • Ontology engineering in provenance enablement for the National Climate Assessment 

      Ma, Xiaogang; Zheng, Jin; Goldstein, Justin; Zednik, Stephan; Fu, Linyun; Duggan, Brian; Aulenbach, Steven; West, Patrick; Tilmes, Curt; Fox, Peter (Environmental Modelling and Software, 2014-08-28)
      The National Climate Assessment of the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) analyzes and presents the impacts of climate change on the United States. The provenance information in the assessment is important because ...
    • Rapid Deployment of a RESTful Service for Data Collected by Oceanographic Research Cruises 

      Fu, Linyun; Arko, Robert (2014-05-27)
      The Rolling Deck to Repository (R2R) program has the mission to capture, catalog, and describe the underway environmental sensor data from US oceanographic research vessels and submit the data to public long-term archives. ...
