Abstract

Columbian River Estuary (CORIE) is aimed for the development of an next-generation coastal-margin observatory- the Science and technology University Research Network (SATURN), to offer a vision of observatory-enables scientific exploration and offer requirements and approaches for generating provenance-aware products in ocean environments. CORIE uses two unstructured-grid numerical models- Eulerian-Lagrangian Circulation (ELCIRC) and the Semi-implicit Eulerian-Lagrangian Finite Element (SELFE) as computational engines. The provenance requirements of CORIE's RoboCMOP-like environment include reusable and active provenance, pay-as-you-go provenance, and intentional provenance for multigranular data. The key to effective scientific exploration is the strategy that ensures that observatory products have known provenance that can be shared, interpreted, and adapted to new purposes.
