Remote Participation Projects

Remote observation and real-time data analysis can broaden the impact of an experiment. NACSE collaborates with the Tsunami Wave Basin here at Oregon State, applying advances in IT to streamline the experimentation process.

The Tsunami Wave Basin is a unique national resource - the largest experimental facility for studying the effects of tsunamis and other large waves. Wave researchers all over the world need access to a facility like this, but extended trips to Corvallis can be difficult. NACSE is developing software tools that make it possible for people to conduct experiments at the Tsunami Wave Basin from anywhere in the world.
