Our goal is to create a cloud-ready repository of open-source coastal modeling tools which enable scientists and engineers to use high performance computers to study a variety of physical and ecological processes. The system we are building leverages Jupyter notebooks, Docker, Singularity, and the Agave Platform to create a platform for running jobs and analyzing data in a way that is (1) intuitive, (2) repeatable, (3) and collaborative.

The paper describes the methodology to integrate the four technologies into the system that serves the coastal resilience research collaboratory. Two commonly used open-source numerical models are used to demonstrate the utilities of the system. Simulation results of ocean waves generated by Hurricane Issac (2012) and coastal wave evolution are presented as an illustration. The sustainability of the collaboratory is discussed in detail.
