Title: A Web Accessible Scientific Workflow System for Performance Monitoring

Abstract

We describe the design and implementation of a web-accessible scientific workflow system for environmental performance monitoring. This workflow environment integrates distributed automated data acquisition with server side data management and information visualization through flexible browser-based data access tools. Component technologies include a rich browser-based client, a back-end server for methodical data processing, user management, and result delivery, and third party applications which are invoked by the back-end using web services. This environment allows for reproducible, transparent result generation by a diverse user base, and provides a seamless integration between data selection, analysis applications, and result delivery. This workflow system has been implemented for several sites and monitoring systems with different degrees of complexity.
