The international Nucleosynthesis Grid (NuGrid) collaboration creates scientific simulation codes and simulation data sets for the origin of the elements.

CANFAR current activities

  • NuGrid has developed within CANFAR the Web-Exploration of NuGrid Data Interactive WENDI, a platform to provide members of the NuGrid collaboration as well as external users analysis and exploration access to the NuGrid data sets
  • NuGrid is using the CANFAR VOspace for sharing data inside and outside the collaboration, taking advantage of the granular access model CANFAR VOspace.

Data & software needs and future plans

  • enhance present capabilities by adding integrated processing capabilities into the WENDI platform
  • integrate collaborative tools, such as versioning and collaborative creation and sharing of analysis workflows
