The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) group awarded $56,000 to an NCCOS-sponsored project that is integrating models to assess the ecological impacts of sea level rise. XSEDE selected the project to facilitate modeling sea level rise and storm surge simulations in the Gulf of Mexico .

XSEDE, a National Science Foundation initiative, boasts the most robust collection of integrated advanced digital resources and services in the world. Through this virtual system, scientists can interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise. XSEDE is led by the University of Illinois's National Center for Supercomputing Applications in partnership with 19 other institutions.
