Migrating half a million Hearst Museum images to Box

Card catalog images, representative of 527,000 similar images migrated to Box

The Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology (PAHMA) recently found itself with over half a million digital catalog card images that are in active use, but needed to be duplicated in order to preserve them in a redundant, reliable archive. Copying a few hundred, or even a few thousand files is a relatively straightforward task. Assuring that 527,000 files are successfully copied in a reasonable period of time, without requiring constant attention, is trickier. Research IT worked with PAHMA’s Dr.

Atmospheric chemists use Savio to build computational gas emission models

Professor Ron Cohen and team

Ron Cohen, Professor of Chemistry and Earth and Planetary Sciences at UC Berkeley, and graduate students Alexis Shusterman, Josh Laughner, and visiting Harvard graduate student Alex Turner, are “trying to create a model of the world that matches the observations of the world.” That is, Cohen’s team is using sensor technology to measure the concentrations of atmospheric gases at both local and global scales, and from that data develop computational models that describe the emission processes and rates that cause those observations.

Savio HPC cluster intermediate training on September 27, 2016

Savio training, 2 Aug 2016, AIS

An intermediate-level training session on the use of Savio and other Berkeley Research Computing high performance computing (HPC) clusters (Cortex and Vector) will be offered on Tuesday, September 27, 2016. If you’re a current or prospective user of one of these clusters, and already have some experience using HPC resources, you are invited to expand your skills via this free training.

Professor Jennifer Ahern of the School of Public Health, and two staff researchers, Masters of Public Health (MPH) Ellie Matthay and Scott Zimmerman, are developing a software tool called the Study Simulator, a web-based simulation generator that will allow investigators to identify optimal study designs and methods of analysis for research inquiries in Public Health and Epidemiology.
