MARVL is now Live!

Marine Virtual LaboratoryThe Marine Virtual Lab is live now. Researchers interested in marine modeling will now have access to an online portal that simplifies the process of marine modelling.

The MARVL allows researchers to obtain a pre-prepared package using simple workflow by combining geographic location, datasets, forcing data and processing power, all within the cloud.

Most researchers, students and academic staff with have access to MARVL via their AAF (Australian Access Federation) identity, in most cases this is your normal login identity at your local university, institute or federal agency.

You can start using MARVL now via the login button (above) or by visiting: http://portal.marvl.org.au

How MARVL will change marine research.

MARVLTshirt100“MARVL will allow researchers to be up and running very quickly, at the moment we spend a large amount of time in preparation, finding appropriate data sets, models, seeking advise on model configuration and how to use and process data sets effectively.

With MARVL all the work will be done. Work that once took weeks, or even months will now be able to performed in hours. For the first time I will be able to get all the material I need to run a model in one place, all correctly configured and ready to be run.”
