Sun, Stanford Create Earth Science Research Center

Sun Microsystems and Stanford University on Tuesday will announce a collaborative program to create the Stanford Computational Earth and Environmental Sciences (CEES) research facility.

It will be used for analysis, simulation, and prediction of earth science processes and systems, leading to the potential creation of new hardware and software in a variety of industries.

Sun is contributing hardware, software, and program support.

The facility officially opens on Tuesday.

It can help develop applications for use in industries including oil and gas exploration, seismic imaging, and earthquake simulation. The new center will also help Sun develop better hardware and software to support a variety of industries. This is according to Jerry Harris, director of CEES and professor of geophysics in the Stanford School of Earth Sciences.
